    Good point.

    My original two rabbits who loved muesli were always slim. Since using pellets 2 out of 7 of my rabbits have had to have their weight monitered, because they would scoff the lot. Difficult when you have a trio.

    As far as I know the original study did not report results for a pellet only diet.

    Even if rabbits eat all the muesli they are given daily, there is a chance with multiple rabbits living together that they can still selectively feed but still polish it all off between them. Pellets do even out the individual's nutritional intake.

    Yes, even if you feed the amount suggested on the bag of food it will be far too high.

    Yes, this is a good point.
