My biggest piece of advice is to go to a feedstore to buy rabbit pellets! At a petstore you'll pay more for 2-3 lbs than you would for 25# at the feedstore! Better pellets at the feedstore too! that might be more than you can use in a couple months but it's way cheaper to throw out half of the feedstore bag than to but at a petstore. I don't know as much about rabbit food as I do chin food, but I like Ace-Hi, that's pretty good. Try giving your bunny cilantro too, my bun goes NUTS for it, and carrot greens! Timothy is good. I've never had my bun on bedding, so i don't know about that... if you don't like pine, you might prefer aspen. Good luck with your bunny!! I can't wait to see pictures!
