We have just got our first rabbit Last week (as parents anyway!), and collecting her brother tomorrow (neutering is v.high on agenda). Both Netherlands dwarf.
I have a few concerns which I would love the community to put me at ease or cast their opinion on!
We have the Eglu hutch with the 2m run, with the wired base, and have the run sitting on the lawn. The current rabbit seems addicted to the grass, and is eating it constantly! We let her run free in the garden with supervision when cleaning, and all she’s interested in is eating more and more grass! She has plenty of hay, which she is beginning to eat more of daily, and she has a small amount of nuggets twice a day along with a few leafy treats or carrot, so she’s not hungry! Is it ok for them to eat that much grass, and do you think she’s getting aggressive to get out the cage for grass as she’s eaten most of the run!!
She’s using a litter tray already which is great, which is outside by the entrance of the run, and apart from eating her nuggets she hardly goes in the hutch! She’ll take shelter in the little tunnel toy we have, but there’s been no droppings or wee in the hutch at all so far!
she also has two water bottles, but hardly seems to drink (we’ve spotted her a couple of times that’s it). Is that normal?
Sorry for the long post!!
any pointers are greatly welcomed!
