    Default How much hay is it normal for rabbits to eat?

    Is it normal for rabbits to eat hay for 30-60 minutes, is it normal for them to eat hay 24/7?

    Rabbits should ideally spend a lot of time eating hay! My Bertie is a good hay eater but he sleeps most of the afternoon and doesn't eat hay if he thinks his pellets or greens are about to be served.

    Cookie started eating so much hay for 7-10 days that it seemed strange to me. Sometimes I see him eating hay for 30-60 minutes. As if his whole life is now eating hay and lying.

    They should eat a pile of hay at least as big as themselves every day. The more hay they eat the better!
