Help! Sos! Help! Rabbit bought and he does not eat carrots!
Help!Sos!Help! the Bunny bought a carrot he won't eat!
Do not worry so .. And if your rabbit does not have 4-5 months, then it is better not to give carrots. My half a year in general did not eat carrots, but then began to crack only so .. But still do not give a lot. One piece a day size 2cm for a 4-month-old rabbit will be enough, then you can increase to 4cm.Esche note that animals like people - in different periods give preference to different foods .. Still better hay and water (unlimited), food select individually
Please tell me why my rabbit takes in the mouth of hay all over the cage and collects it and does not let go, and when I start to take it from her, she snorts. What to do? Help. (
