My boyfriends daughter has 2 lion heads. The female just had to under go a c-section and a spay. well she looks skinny. We always keep a full bowl rabbit food in the cage, well every morning and some afternoons the kid will go to my herb garden and get a hand full! lol. The rabbits love it but im wondering if that may be the reason she looks so thin... if the herbs are available, will they eat that instead of there bunny food? and all the herbs are safe for rabbits(they love some peppermint and pansies).

I'm not much of an expert with bunnies, though.

Not sure about the skinniness, but rabbits should actually have limited access to pellets (which can cause obesity) and unlimited hay. Other veggies, like the herbs, are also great to give. Could it be that she only appears to be skinnier because they shaved some of her fluffy hair away?

Thank you! she is gaining weight now. I think it had something to do with the bad pregnancy. we keep pellets in there all the time. I just didnt know if giving her so much of the herbs was filling her up and so she wasn't eating her rabbit food. She is doing great now and eating her pellets, I think it may have been all the stress that was put on her.

Bunnies need a high fibre diet,
Pellet diet is best with Lots and lots of hay and then lots of herbs hid in the hay to encourage hay eating. xxx
