    Good news!

    I had a rabbit recently and she had never eaten fresh veggies. I gave her a little carrot and greens and she looked absolutely disgusted. And continued to be so for a very long time! However, in the end she succumbed and enjoys it all along with the others now

    I agree with this. I switched Doughnut over to science select and tried Oxbow too but then she started her digestion issues and when I got her back from the specialist she was on muesli! He said keep it simple just muesli and hay and if they only have a bit of muesli and eat all of it and have lots of hay it isn't bad for them. The main thing as we all know is hay. I give Doughnut 18g a day split into two potions, she weights 1.2kg. She always eats her favourite bits first but the pellets are soon gone too.

    I personally think that dry food is such a small part of the diet that it doesn't really matter too much!
