    I've got my friend's bunnies here this week and they came with some Coriander. I don't like the smell myself!

    :-( bad mummy.

    I've been so scared to try them with new food because Pip kept getting poorly, but she's doing so well I want to try again.

    They've both been fine with forage and have tried a wide range now.

    They like
    Dandelion
    Plantain
    Echinacea
    Hazel leaves
    Raspberry leaves
    Chamomile
    Hibiscus
    Rose petals

    Don't like so much
    Strawberry leaves
    Blackcurrant leaves
    Nettle leaves
    Lemon balm
    Birch leaves

    Well actually will eat all of these but lady Pip is a bit more selective. lol

    Just ordered them Blackberry leaves & Cornflowers to try....Soooo spoilt

    Rose leaves! Or in fact, just whole twigs of the lot of it (the abovementioned lists), give them something to throw about, chew on etc. As loobers implies, foraging is amazing Hawthorn, willow (preferably weeping in my two's case), apple are our favourites here, as well as cowparsley and pretty much the whole list above
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.

    I always feed rose leaves along with Bramble when a bunny is coming out of stasis, or in a heavy moult

    Yes the whole lot. I am keeping the hips separate for another time, but I have a lot of rose leaves so they are going to have that throughout the winter months.

    I will be growing dandelion and plantain in our new garden. Neighbours will think I'm bananas

    ..I work on a nature reserve but there is so much mixi this year there I'm avoiding foraging. Need to explore around our new warren (house) to see if there's anywhere suitable. There's a council park but I'm sure they spray the plants :-(
