A rabbit should receive 3% of its body weight in pellets every day (Ex: a 10 lb bunny should get about 5 oz. a day), but rabbits under 5 lbs. should get 6% of its body weight.
A rabbits feed proportions should be around 14% healthy greens, 6% pellets and 80% timothy or orchard hay
When I say treats I mean healthy ones not carrots
Carrots are full of sugars
Never feed your little friend those yogurt bits rabbits can’t eat dairy
Some edible “treats” are leaf lettuce, celery, basil, spinach, and any leafy greens
They should always have accesses to hay and fresh, clean water
Rabbits love pineapple, and it is a very healthy treat when given in small amounts.
I learned this one time when I was holding my rabbit and eating some fresh pineapple from my grandparent’s vacation in Hawaii. My buck stuck his head in the bowl of pineapple, had eaten it, and gone back in for more before I even knew what was happening! I, of course, looked it up to make sure it was safe, and it was.
Soft bristle brush
Dry shampoo or no wash shampoo
And a chew
Typical day to day grooming only requires the wire and soft bristle brushes and occasionally the chew and the nail clippers
Show prep grooming needs it all
Groom like normal
Spray the dry shampoo or no wash shampoo as directed and brush with wire brush till dry or until worked in thoroughly
Once the rabbit is clean clip nails carefully
Once nail clipping is over, spray a little bit of show sheen on the rabbit and use the soft bristle brush to work it into their hair.
The difference between a breeder and a multiplier is that one breeds for specific traits that improve their animals whether that be to make a better animal through their own or show standards. While the other just keeps making more babies with no care for improving what they have. We choose to be breeders.
