    I think, readigrass is used along side hay, just cos of the price. I pay 4pounds for a bale of hay, where at its 10pounds for the same size bale of readigrass.

    mine get a handful each, every couple of days, along with unlimited farm hay and other treat hays. Although there is research to prove that readigrass (and short cut hay) are better stimulation for rabbits and horses, rather than eating long strands.

    At 13 weeks I would be introducing small bits of fruit and veg, about the size of yout thumb in total. Introduce one at a time, and watch for 'results' over then next few days.

    You can try them on a small amount of readigrass Jenny Like anything new though, give in small amounts

    Im sure you could also start to try them on veg... is start with something basic like spring greens... or cauliflower leaves if you ever use cauliflower? Just give them a TINY piece each, literally, the size of a 50p You can gradually up this if theyre poos are normal.

    2 of my buns have had softer buns over new year, i too think it was because the fireworks

    If they havent had grass before, until the last few days remember to limit that too as you would a new food

    How are these little guys doing xXx

    thanks for the reply

    ive just been out to them and gave them a small amount and they it i even mangaed to sweep the shed with the door open and no escapeeees. i only gave them a small bit to try.

    they do have the hay cookies from p@h and it takes 2 days to eat them, i also give them timothy hay.

    I only feed this as a treat as it can upset their tummy in large quantities.

    Aww bless them Yeah i agree about the grass, Ronnie was out there on the grass when i first got him He loved it!!

    Can they still see each other when theyre in the shed?? Time will fly and they'll soon be back together

    All our buns have a small handful of readigrass daily hun, so a small amount shouldnt hurt them, theyre such lucky buns!! xXx

    they can still see each other as what hubby did was get a dog run pannel and fixed it down middle of shed so they can see each other through the mesh. im hoping as the vet did say they do males at 16 weeks that he can be done in around 3/4 weeks maybe jan payday 29th so wont be long then they can be together
