Traditionally, ceramic crocks have been used to feed and water rabbits. The drawbacks to these crocks are that they break easily and water and food are contaminated easily by young bunnies.  A rabbit will eat approximately 3 to 4 percent of its body weight daily, or about .64 ounces for each pound the rabbit weighs.  A well-formulated and well-manufactured pellet is the foundation for any good rabbit nutrition program.  The pelleting process enables the manufacturer, to combine many ingredients into one package which provides the most complete nutrition possible.  

Provide fresh, clean water at all times.

If breeding bucks and dry does show signs of becoming fat, limit intake according to body condition.

Don't feed rabbits any treats until they are six months old.

Watch for Salmonellosis (diarrhea) when feeding treats.
