It is good for them.  I don't know how much to feed but it may say on the bag.  If not, ask the breeder and/or contact the manufacturer of Calf Manna.

The obscure we understand eventually. 
The obvious takes a little longer.

I would only use it as a treat. Say one or two tsp a day. A little more to a nursing doe. Good stuff. Very nutritious, and also fattening. A little for newly weaned kits. Not too much, though. It is rich. Smells so good you just want to eat it 😋. Also, go to a health food store and pick up a bottle of papaya tablets. Give one or two a day (in their feeder. They love it), and you will avoid problems with fur accumulating in their gut, which can kill them if they get blocked). Fur block is a common problem with rabbits. Papaya dissolves fur.
