Linus refuses to eat anything different
Linus's current diet consists of hay, pellets, and water.
Today, my mom brought home some parsley from the market. I remembered reading somewhere that parsley was a good "starter food" for rabbits as its less likely to cause stomach upset. So I took a small sprig, washed it, and tried to give it to him.
He took one whiff and pretty much ran away from it. Then he shook his head at me as if to say "How dare you try to offer me THAT!"
Then, just a few minutes ago, I tried to offer him a small, small piece of pineapple, and he did the same thing. He's acting like a petulant child... probably because he IS a petulant child at 3 1/2 months old.
Is it possible for some rabbits to just want hay and pellets and nothing else? I mean, obviously all I tried was pineapple and parsley, but do you have any tricks for introducing foods to rabbits or is it just kind of a trial and error thing?
