Arrow Guide for successfully change pellets brand for picky buns!!!

A bunny is like a baby when it's time to change brand food. Same with babies when changing formula. Here is a guide that will help some of you to make a successful change:

For example, if your rabbit eats 1/4 cup of pellets a day do the following:

Day 1 - 5 1 cup old brand - 1/4 cup new
Day 6 - 10 3/4 cup old brand - 1/2 cup new
Day 11 - 15 1/2 cup old brand - 3/4 cup new
Day 16 - 20 1/4 cup old brand - 1 cup new
Day 21 Switched over to new food

From this mix scoop out their daily feed allotment. Some animals are pickier than others and will literally eat around the new pellet. If your animal does this, be patient. There is always a small percentage of animals that will refuse any changes and test the will and stubbornness of the owner.
