    Default New to fresh forage - are these brambles, please?

    Hi all

    Our buns normally get fresh herbs and dried forage along with their hay & pellets but spotting the property next door to ours is empty and the garden very overgrown, I had a quick look. Can someone confirm these are indeed brambles and are ok to feed to the bunnies in ther entirety? Thanks

    Lovely young bramble shoots - probably not too picky either?

    Yum for the buns x

    They appear to cope fine with the thorns.

    it's weird, isn't it?

    A rabbit gets a mouth ulcer from a spike on it's tooth, and yet consumes nettles, rose thorns and brambles without issue.

    But then I will never understand rabbits

    Thanks for all your replies, I've picked some of the newest, freshest shoots. Will try them with a couple of leaves with their dinner tonight

    Brambles are the one forage (in my experience) that bunnies adjust to really quickly. It's so good for their digestion - full of fibre, vitamin C and a good amount of minerals
