    My pair of bridge buns loved Spring greens,they used to circle me and bum wiggle when I gave them some.I always cut a thin slice from the base of the plant then plunged them into a basin of cold water to crisp them up,I let them soak fir an hour or so.I do this with broccoli,cabbage etc now for myself.

And just some herbs - maybe that isn't too much? Idk they all seem to love it and eat it all and I've not had any issues yet...

    It doesn't sound like too much to me

    I don't worry about veg and forage too much, though I don't feed an awful lot of kale. At the moment the buns are only getting forage from my garden, and grass (along with hay and a few pellets).

    I also give them filtered water, as that will make sure they aren't overloaded with calcium that way

    Yeah mine love these! They were funny though and nearer winter they wouldn’t touch them, so I think they taste different depending on the season maybe.

    I know exactly what you mean though, I have to google everything and see it on at least three good sources before I trust it’s ok lol x

    I have never given spring greens as thought can cause gas?

    I would like to though if it's safe?

    I find these cause the most gas .. Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower

    I have never known greens to cause gas. Or kale for that matter

    I would suspect all brassicas to cause gas, but in differing risk-values We've only ever had a problem with Lopsy and sprouts though!
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.
