Been finishing up my preps for my rabbits ( extra pellets/hay)....I hear corn is good for them .... What kind of corn ? (raw corn on the cob? field corn?).... Any info would be appreciated.

Rabbits love clover. It can be grown easily
in small flats. Plant some Plantain in the
flats for both of you. Rabbits love to eat
the tops and the leaves are an excellent wound

Any kind of corn. I give them fresh picked corn on the cob in the summer, along with lots of other veggies out of the garden. In the winter they get a little dry corn( shelled off cob) mixed in with pellets. Don't give them too much as it turns to fat. Also make sure your rabbits have a hard stick to chew on. They must chew on wood to keep their teeth from getting too long. Teeth get too long and they will starve to death. My rabbits love turnips, cabbage, lettuce of all kinds, carrots, brocalli, califlower. They like apples and cukes too. They won't eat citrus, beets, parsnips, green beans or okra. They get lots of veggies when in season and a some pellets. In the winter, I do buy some fresh veggies for them (hey, I only have two and they are pets)and give them the high priced food with all the "cookies" in it. I get it at WalMart. I also have two parrots and a potbellied pig and 8 miniture donkeys, and 7 hens. So while there are only 3 of us in the family to feed, I grow a huge garden to feed all the critters. We also buy hay and dry corn by the ton. But you really need to grow lots of food to help feed the critters and they will be healthier for it too.
