    Dont give them too much If they are not used to them you dont want to upset their tummies.

    My rabbits eat the whole radish too.

    Wasn't it radishes that Peter Rabbit was stealing in one of the Beatrix Potter stories?

    According to Rabbit Welfare it's just the tops:

    Remember, just cos bunnies are shown eating something on TV or in a book doesn't mean it's good for them. Bug Bunny eats carrots all the time but as we know they're sugary and should be given in moderation.

    Very true, but just because one website said it's bad doesn't mean they all will. I must have seen it on a safe list before I gave it to mine, but they've all been fine; and they love it too.
