    Default Eating straw

    My rabbit seems to be eating straw? Not sure what else to say haha it's under the hay but she seeks it out. Is this safe? My previous ones never seemed interested in the straw so wasn't sure if it's okay or not.

    Advice appreciated

    Yes, it's perfectly safe

    Some people get concerned because there's not so much nutritional value in straw as opposed to hay. If she's also eating hay, I don't see a big problem there

    Ah thanks I was worried because when I Googled it there were people saying it is bad. But she eats everything haha my first two were a bit picky but the two I got recently seem to love their food - I reckon they'd happily get very fat if left to their own devices!

    Mine like a good old chomp on their straw when I change the litter trays (newspaper, straw and hay). Never been a problem.
