    Any body have a list of treat that are healthy for bunnies?

    I am going to see if mine will eat papaya... They were for my bird. The package said for all birds, but it's only ingredients is dried papaya and artificial color. It that ok for him to eat?

    sure thats good for bunnies.
    dark leafed lettuces
    cali flower
    parsley
    apples (in small amounts)
    bananas(in small amounts)
    carrots(in small amounts)
    pineapple
    blueberries(insmall amounts)
    strawberries(insmall amounts)
    sugar snap peas
    snow peas
    you just need to keep the sugery fruits in small amounts becuase too much sugar isnt good for them even natural sugers
    they can also have broccoli and cabbage but also in small amounts as it could cause tummy ache and gas.

    Raw green/yellow beans
    Watermellon rinds

    Like posted above I'd stay away from high suger stuff like dried fruit. In fact they don't even seam to like it all that much. Example the water mellon rind that human tastes don't like the rabbits and guinea pigs love, and they will kind of eat aound the sweat red parts favoring the grren parts first.

    Papayas grow in trees, birds eat fruits in trees rabbits, not so much.[​IMG]

    Quote:Hammie the guinea pig is the same way. It's fun to yell "Hammie, want a 'nana??" from the kitchen. If he is out, he comes racing through the house - squealing all the way. If he is in his cage or the bedroom door is shut, he starts just popcorning around.
