So many differences of opinion, but what is, in your opinion, the best veg for a rabbit to eat??? Top five please!

No 1 being the best and so on.....

i dont know about whats best for them :oops: but i know in order of preference my lot like

1. pear (but only small amounts of course)
2. spring greens
3. parsley
4. celery
5. cauli leaves and cauli itself

i would imagine though that the more green the veg is, the better for bunnies it is

Hmm, I find it a difficult question too.

Deej loves

1: Cabbage or spring greens
2: Cucumber
3: Celery
4: Cauliflower or Broccoli
5: Carrots

He seems to have a bit of a thing for veg beginning with C :oops:

As for fruit he loves apples and tomatoes! :D

Thanks for the replies - just that Pickle doesnt seem to go much for spring greens!!

Pickle would be:

1. Grapes
2. Carrot
3. Dandelion
4. Grass
5. Apple

Not tried raisons or parsley or watercress... must make note to buy some at the supermarket!!

I wouldn't advise encouraging a bunny to eat raisins ..they are high in sugar and are not good for them :(

Excuse me please!!

Can I make a small complaint please.....you asked for the top 5 veggies and people are putting herbs in their list of veggies and it's confusing me!!

Seriously, this is a brilliant thread so can you rename it and ask for top 5 veggies and top 5 herbs, would make it much easier when I go shopping

Or am I being to pedantic?

Sorry! :roll:

My two's top five (in order of preference) are:

1. Spring greens
2. Carrots
3. Brocolli
4. Parsley (flat-leaved preferable to curly)
5. Coriander

I know the last two are herbs and not veg but it's just what they like. They don't seem keen on fruit and look at me as if I'm stupid if I offer them grapes! :shock: :lol: :lol:

Snowy

You shouldn't give a bunny curly parsley because it's got too much calcium in it and can give them bladder stones, flat leaf parsley is OK though

Just thought I would mention it

1 - Cale
2 - Cauliflower Leaves
3 - Brocalli
4 - Greens
5 - Carrot

I think that "carrot" is technically the only veg on my list, the others grow on top of the ground so they are not veg???

Perhaps there could be a top 5 fruit section as well?

Ooh thanks :shock: I didn't know that! Will be sticking to flat leaf from now on (although they don't have either very often as they prefer spring greens above all else!)

Mine scoff anything they're given so its hard to tell which they like best! :lol:
Herbs, apple and all green leafy stuff are sure bets.
And does anyone else's bunnies go nuts if they get hold of a bit of banana skin?!

Nah - the definition of fruit is:

the developed ovary of a seed plant with its contents and accessory parts, as the pea pod, nut, tomato, or pineapple.

or to put it simply ... the edible part of a plant developed from a flower.

:D
