Rabbits have a very sensitive digestive system,they can get sick very quickly when fed high sugary treats and lots of junk.
The best way to feed your pet rabbit is to provide high fiber found in Grass Hay like Timothy hay and Orchard Grass.
About 80% of your rabbit daily feed should be of Hay,12% of dark green leaves and 8% of high fiber high end pellets without seeds or sugary treats in it.
When you purchase your pet rabbit from us, we have already introduced organic greens to our babies, so all you need to do is follow the instructions provided to you during pick up. If have not purchased your pet rabbit from us, be very careful as many breeders do not feed greens to cut cost or because they think it makes their rabbits sick. Something I never understood....God created rabbits herbivores which means they eat grass, leaves, branches, little berries in the wild, but for some reason specially "show" breeders think that rabbits should not have vegetables. In that case if you bought your bunny else where wait until he is at least 4-5 months and introduce a little bit of greens per day until he is used to have it. Do not suddenly change your bunnies diet as they are sensitive to changes and could get sick.
The best feed I have found in Utah is Mannapro Sho it has just the right amount of protein and I mix with Purina Fibre 3 to provide extra fiber, but if you are feeding a different type of pellets and want to change it, be sure to mix 50% of the new feed to 50% of the old feed for at least 7 days to prevent upset tummies.
Imitating nature is the wise and correct way to feed a bunny, think:" how would rabbits eat in the wild without human intervention?" That is how you want to feed your pet rabbit.
I have this Awesome AC unit that works perfectly,but I wanted one that has heat as well so I'm selling my current one.
it's for a medium room or 300-400sft.
please email me if interested
Are you starting your own rabbitry? in Love with Holland lops and want to figure out where to start?
I have the best advice for beginners. Do not buy a baby to start your breeding program. Even if parents are Grand Champions you just cannot tell how a baby will mature. There are people who will sell babies as brood quality or show quality but if you want to move forward on your breeding program, find a reputable breeder and buy proven stock from them ,not baby!
Although we look forward to a day that we can participate in more shows and bring home awards and memories,our main focus is to take great care of our herd of rabbits, providing them with all that they deserve and more. We just started today,to build a fun addition to our rabbits play area. We want them to have lots of exercise and time to dig, run and enjoy life. We will post photos as we progress, today was a lot of measuring, buying the materials and starting to cut so not much to photograph yet, but rest assured we will share our projects here with you soon!
Holland Lops are smart and social rabbits ,they deserve more then just sit in cages!
Welcome to my Blog. I hope to inspire you to develop a wonderful relationship with your rabbits. I will share my thoughts and daily updates here. I hope you enjoy!
