once your rabbit reaches 4 months, you can start giving it some more advanced foods. if the bunny is older than 12 weeks you should start weaning them off of pellets and into hay and fresh veggies and other good stuff for rabbits!
a lot of people wonder what to feed a baby bunny. because bunnies grow very quickly (and especially cutely!) they need a diet that’s high in protein so they can grow their muscles and bones at an appropriate rate. baby bunnies also need milk from their mommies so if yours doesn’t want to nurse her babies anymore, you may have to look into buying pet-milk replacement formula made for kittens or puppies.
after about four weeks, or when the babies are big enough to start nibbling on solid foods, you can introduce them to a diet of hay, fresh veggies, and specially made rabbit food pellets.
at 12 weeks old, your bunny can also eat:
- cooked spinach
- cooked carrots
- cooked green beans
- apples (without the seeds or core)
- watermelon (without the seeds)
- banana (remove the peel)
- grapes (remove the seeds)
- pears (remove the core)
so as you can see, there are plenty of different things that your bunny can eat at this age! just make sure to avoid giving them anything too sugary or salty, since that can lead to a lot of health problems down the road.
a good rule of thumb is that you should only feed them five different kinds of food, in small portions. this will help make sure that your rabbit doesn’t develop any allergies or intolerances to certain things.
