    If you are introducing new foods to your rabbits diet it should bedone gradually.

    Rabbit Nutrition by Virginia Richardson has a very comprehensive list

    Green foods for Rabbits and Cavies by F R Bell is also very comprehensive

    both available from the RWA and Amazon.

    I've already posted my pet poisonous thing and that is apple pips! Did it elsewhere though so thought I should add it here.

    You lot are a nightmare! Could you maybe list the foods instead of giving the websites, as I'm having to search through all those sites and sift through all the foods and it's going to take me hours if not days to sort it out!

    If we can get our own list together, I'll ask Tamsin (nicely) if there is any way we could have it like as a reference page, not loads of posts.

    Brilliant Idea Lynda.....us Bunny "Mummys" have enough distractions already without surfing volumes and pages of information...someone needs to organise our lives for us, as we are too busy to organise ourselves!!
