What weed plants do rabbits love

Here are 6 plants that rabbits love

Our rabbits Nini and Eddie get different wild weeds every day throughout the summer. Here are 6 of our rabbits' favorite plants, i.e. some of the plants that are always eaten first.

The best thing you can do for your rabbit is to pick wild plants out in nature. After all, rabbits out in the wild live on grass and green leaves, supplemented by flowers, twigs and seeds.

Fresh greens are super important to your rabbit, just as important as hay. Vegetables can be used when there is no opportunity to pick outside, but vegetables, as a rule, are too watery and do not contain enough of the indigestible fibers that the rabbit’s digestive system needs.

All plants are easy to recognize and find, as they grow everywhere.

  1. Grasses

Preferably the coarse tufts that grows everywhere where there is little nature.

Shrubbery that grows in many places as scrub. You can tell them by these long dry sticks sticking growing up from the ground with leaves on them. There are he and she plants. Females are given red currant-like berries later in the summer.
