My rabbit was 8 weeks old when I got her and was absolutely thrilled tohave timothy hay. Her pellets were alfalfa-based so I just stuck withthe timothy. Rabbits should be eating grass hay by the time they areadults anyway. Pellets *should* be a complete diet, although Iconsidered the hay as making up for the lack of fiber (stupid KayteeFiesta).
Can I feed our rabbits plain alfalfa pellets
It is hard to beat a quality pellet for rabbits for the best performance (high production) in your herd. Pellets are designed to grow a healthy rabbit in the most economical way. Even using lower priced pellets may not save in the long run as they are most likely made up with lower quality ingredients. I do feed pellets (alfalfa based only no corn ever) as the main diet in the winter.
I am still so new at the whole rabbit thing
Both of these factors are propelling Aurora Rex Rabbit Ranch to explore the feasibility of stopping with the pellets and converting our rabbit food to a variety of alfalfa, forages and green foods. And from the feedback our visitors give us, we think we're not the only ones!
