In the mornings, especially now because we’re deep into the Wintery season, the bunnies are huddled together in their hutches waiting for me to arrive to dish out breakfast before I go to work. Some mornings they get greens such as silverbeet, spinach, herbs, or cabbage, depending on what’s on hand; and they always get hay.
Lots of hay. A bale a fortnight at the moment, which is great! because hay is very good for bunnies to chew, and digest, and to have in their hutches to sleep and snuggle in.
When I get home in the evenings they get pellets and boy, do they know when it’s dinner time. Charlie heads the charge as they stampeed across the lawn towards me as I come down the back steps to measure out their dinner.
Sometimes, before I go to bed, I take sliced apples or carrots out for the bunnies to have a late-night. I hold the plate with the sliced treat and each bunny takes a slice though they would really like more than one so sometimes, that’s what they get.
They’re really just so interesting and fun.
