What do I need?

Ok, I'm beyond exhausted and reading these sites is putting me to sleep so I'm going to be a bum and just ask what things I need to get for Frodo.

I know hay and litter. What about veggies, etc? I'm going to call the feed stores tomorow to see if/who has Oxbow/Mazuri.

TIA!

As far as veggies go, I feed mine parsley, italian parsley, cilantro, carrots, broccoli, endive, escarole, red leaf and green leaf lettuce, dandelion greens and other veggies. They LOVE dandelion greens!

I would find out what veggies he has had and how often and introduce new ones slowly and in small quantities until he is used to them.

The veggies I feed are romaine lettuce, celery, carrots, alfalfa sprouts, asparagus, brocolli, mixed greens, and dandelion greens. I also sometimes give them fruit, like apples and bananas...also Puchiko, my Britannia Petite, has odd tastes and likes pineapple

I agree with Catherine
But ours will eat Romaine Lettuce, Collard Greens (they love those), Spinach (sparingly and not often), Celery, Carrots, Corn on the cob, Broccoli, Sprouts, and from time to time fresh fruit like blueberries, bananas, and apples.

mine love corn on the cob, broccoli, spinach leaves, bok choy, carrots, celery, snow peas, beans, peppers (we call them capsicum) and they like juicy fruits like watermelon, and strawberries, apple, mango, but fruits are only in small amounts.
But I sgree with catherine too, feed her what she is used to and then offer the rest in small amounts.

Too lazy to even think of a siggy

I emailed the PO to see what she had been giving her. She has her on Hartz pellets, said if you give her food with "stuff" in it she won't eat it - she's a naturally healthy bunny! LOL I bought some Mazuri and will slowly transition her - over how long of a period should I do this?
