Thread: Spring Greens (Relating to a thread in Health)

  1. #1

    Default Spring Greens (Relating to a thread in Health)

    Hi all,

    (I didn't want to derail olices thread in Health, but it's got me wondering about Spring Greens.)

    A few people mentioned noticing problems with their buns after eating spring greens, gas etc. My buns love them and I've been giving them regularly with no apparent problems.

    Do I need to stop giving them, or only if I notice any anything?

    What do others typically feed their rabbits each day, veg wise?

    Thanks in advance x

    I feed spring greens as a staple most days and have never ever had any issues

    Sometimes we never get to the bottom (no pun intended) of our rabbits' digestive issues.

    However, forage and fresh grass are also very good

    Like MM, spring greens are the staple veg here.

    Ditto here. 2 green meals a day, one is usually spring greens.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Maybe it's just some rabbits that don't tolerate them to well. I think I'll just keep giving them then, as long as I don't notice any problems x

    Mine regularly have spring greens, cabbage and kale - all things that some people's buns can't tolerate. But they don't seem to cause mine any problems so I feed them daily.

    In winter the majority of my bunnies greens are from the cabbage family...my 3 seem to tolerate them well. Spring- late autumn I replace the cabbage with forage
