    Default How much?

    I'm gradually getting Brandi used to fresh forage, he's always had grass and veg but I've started giving brambles and dandelions.
    How many bramble leaves can he have a day?
    He had half a leaf Sunday and Monday night, is it ok to increase it tonight?

    Yes, Brambles are usually well-tolerated by rabbits and I assume he had no ill effects after the half a leaf. If he was OK, then I would give 5 or 6 and then increase it to a handful or so. Mine will eat a large bucketful between the 3 of them

    Is Brandi the rabbit who is at the vets at the moment?

    Bailey, his brother, is in the vets at the moment, I'm looking for things to keep Brandi busy

    OK, sorry Brambles are very good for rabbits' tums I hope Bailey is soon allowed home to keep him company.

    Hopefully Bailey will have his dental tomorrow and fingers crossed that's what's wrong with him and it helps improve things

    I hope his dental goes well and he starts to feel better afterwards.

    My buns love brambles (black berries). In the autumn I love watching then carefully pick the blackberries off the stalks. It's amazing how they don't seem to catch themselves on the prickles. Mine have decimated a huge blackberry plant in a pot. It's just a bare stick now.
