Understanding what a rabbit need is the first step when choosing feed. Price should not be your first concern by any means.
Things to consider: What type of rabbit do you have. Size and Breed.
Life style: sedentary,moderate,active.
Most commercially milled pellets are alfafa meal based pellets however even then, they are not all equally made, some has high contents of protein,low fiber,high carbs, and it all makes a huge difference.
Feeding high protein and low fiber increases morbidity and mortality rates from diarrhea.
A low fiber content of 15% may increase the potential for anorexia and diarrhea,and one with more than 16% reduces feed palatability. A higher fiber content helps prevent obesity in pet rabbits. A higher protein content may be safely used for conditioning show rabbits.
We have two brands we feed in different ratios to provide correct nutriotional value to all our rabbits.
Dark green leaves are a great part of all my rabbits daily diet,however if you didnt adopt a bunny from me ,increase greens very slow as most breeders feed only generic ,cheap pellets.
Timothy hay,prairie,oat,brome,etc are better choices than alfalfa.
Remember that dietary requirements vary according to the age,gender and use of each rabbit.
