You can also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them.
