she probably hadn't been eating well on her own and when you started feeding her good stuff her instincts kicked in telling her to get the rest of the nutrients out of what you gave her so she could regulate her system
the way that i have trained my buns is by a book that i got. try keeping her confined to an enclosure or cage (approx 2' x 4') with enough room for her litterbox and room for her to stretch out. put some of her poopie balls in the litterbox and if she pees on paper or you clean it up with a paper napkin, put that in the litterbox to help her get the idea of what it's for - of course take her out to run around and play, but for the most part leave her in the enclosure. when she starts getting the idea you can give her a little more room and so on and so forth. but if she pees outside of the litterbox after you give her more room, go back a step and take away a little space until she starts using the litterbox again. be sure to spray any accident sites with white vinegar (it works better un-dilluted), this will keep her from going to that same spot again because the vinegar destroys the urine and smell.
after the first step, the others go pretty quick. she may even get the hang of it in just a few days. be patient and try not to scold - it's like potty training a little kid, accidents happen. Charlie has been potty trained for 3 years, but if he gets really startled he'll still let loose a few stray poopies every now and then - but those are super easy to clean up. even though both Charlie and Daisy have the run of their room, their litterboxes and food dishes are still in their original "enclosures" (their cages) just in case there is ever a time that they have to be closed up - like if my husband and i go away for a few days and we don't want to come home to some way-too-curious bunnies, that way their stuff is in the same place door closed or open.
good luck with Tabatha!
