Think like a Rabbit
Bunnies eat bunny food. People eat people food.
With that said: think smart, think like a rabbit, and feed SAFE greens if so desired
Alfalfa: fresh or hay
Apples: all parts - be mindful of seeds toxic over time.
Beets: both top and root of regular, sugar, or mangel
Blackberry bush leaves
Bluegrasses, including Canadian
Bread: dry, or soaked in milk
Carrot: root and tops.
Cereals (if fat-free and fresh)
Clovers: any but sweet clover
Corn: fresh or dried ears, fresh or dried stalks.
Fescue: red, etc.
Filaree (stork’s bill)
Grains: all types, unless dirty, damp, or moldy
Grass: Lawn clippings, grass grains, as long as they carry no
insecticides & are fresh
Jerusalem artichokes: tops, stems, or roots
Kohlrabi: all parts of plant okay
Lettuce: all kinds - think smart, don't over feed!
Milk: fresh or sour, as well as milk products
Millet: foxtail and Japanese
Peas and pea vines
Rye, rye grass, and Italian rye grass
Spinach: in limited amount
Sunflower: leaves, stalks, or seeds
Sweet potatoes: vines or tubers
Swiss chard: in limited amount
Turnips: all parts of plant
Other personal notes: mine will eat melon rinds of all sorts … plus any flesh I leave on them. I make a point of only feeding one slice per week. Don’t want to overdo this wet and sweet food at all. Mine do not do well on cabbage itself, they can handle limited amounts of broccoli stalks. I am VERY careful with this family of plants. Causing bloat in rabbits is NOT a good idea.
Beans and bean vines (not soybean) - fresh NOT dried.
Cabbage: some is okay --- I recommend caution, as some rabbits will bloat.
Fruit: oranges, grapefruit, cherries, peaches etc. These are sugar to bunnies, pits are a no go for most any animal.
Carrot roots: these are sugar to bunnies.
Do NOT feed
Amaranth - I've heard of folks feeding amaranth without issues.
Chokecherry leaves or pits
Comfrey — Personal note: some folks feed this with no problems.
Milkweed — personal note: yet wild bunnies have been known to eat this no probs. Dried it WILL kill a rabbit or at minimum make it quite ill.
Moldy bread, moldy anything
Pigweed – mine will eat the young leaves, they leave the stalk and older leaves
Potato leaves, sprouts, or peels
Soybeans or soybean vines
Sweet clover – personal note — what’s wrong with clover?
Tomato leaves - though some rabbits can eat these with ill effect!
