    Default Buns eating lavender plants

    I have quite a bit of lavender in my garden which the buns like to eat. I have started cutting a sprig off and putting it in their runs. Is lavener OK for them and how much should they be allowed to eat?

    Lola loves the stuff - the smellier the better!

    I recently bought some Timothy Hay and it had a sprig of lavender in it so I guess it is OK for them - I grow it in the garden especially for Lola.

    Lavender is absolutely okay for buns. All of mine eat it as a treat.

    I tend to give them one or two flower stalks a day of one sprig of leaf growth.

    It's a herby plant so not a problem but as with all things, introduce gently to bunnies and only small amounts little and often.

    Good.

    I thought it was OK for them as mine often raid the plants but until the other day I have never pulled sprigs off and put it in their runs (so I've never actively encouraged them to eat it) but will do from now on.

    Thanks
