Or, if your household is a small one and you are living in the city, you only have one small little rabbit.
What also got us excited was the fact that kaytee rabbit food comes well recommended by veterinarians and rabbit enthusiasts who have kept a stock of rabbits on their smallholdings or backyards for quite some time and have now discovered the nutritious benefits of Kaytee food for rabbits. Today we are going to briefly fill you in on the right amount of rabbit food to feed your bunnies. This so you know before you go off and run to buy your new kaytee batch of food.
In determining the right amount of rabbit food to feed your brood, a number of factors come into play. The most important one is just how much fresh food you are currently feeding your rabbit, or rabbits. Another important factor is the access to essential ingredients that your domestic or yard space allows for your rabbits. Are you one of those lucky few who are able to allow your rabbits to roam the yard and forage for their own food which you have strategically placed in different areas of the yard?
Or are you of the majority who only have access to a hatch in which space is confined for the poor little rabbit? In this case, it really does not matter what type of food, whether it is the fresh produce or your new batch of kaytee, what is more important here is the amount of food that you have left in the rabbit cage. Because the rabbit is confined, food is immediately accessible. There is a tendency for these rabbits to eat everything that is before them.
This is due to their natural survival instincts in which case rabbits rush through their meals and basically polish off everything that is before them because they are instinctively never sure when their next meal is going to arrive. So, if you have to keep a rabbit in a recommended hutch for extensive periods of time, you do need to minimize or restrict the food volumes here. You must also remember that the poor old rabbit is not able to exercise as it should when in such a confined space.
So, you really do not want a scenario where you will be overfeeding the rabbit and risking its health by allowing it to put on weight well above their natural weight. By the time you have purchased kaytee’s food, the product pack instructions will be telling you this much.
