    Default Can Bunnies eat Strawberry leaves?

    I know they can have blackberry and raspberry leaves and stalks, but what about strawberry leaves?

    I know that I give mine the green tops that I cut off the strawberries. Do you mean the leaves off the plants? Hmm.. I've never thought about that, but I'd imagine they'd just be the same as the top parts.

    Yes they can eat strawberry leaves. Frankie 1 of my indoor buns also had a whole strawberry last night as he loves them too!

    Thank you! I'd hate to give my boys anything that was bad for them, and the strawberry leaves are growing well at the moment so I thought they'd make a nice change

    I thought they were bad, like part of the deadly nightshade family? I might be thinking of tomatoes though!

    My Strawberry ate a whole tomato plant including stalk, leaves and tomatoes and had no problems.

    He has also eaten numerous strawberry plants from the garden!

    Mind you today he tried to eat a bumblebee so I think he has a stomach of steel!
