Can I feed my rabbits wheat berries?

I have some wheat berries that we bought to make our own flour, however, around that time, I found out that I'm allergic. I have 50 lbs and don't want to waste it. Can I feed it to my rabbits?

Thanks.

Yup, you can add some grains to their diet. It is a bit of a "hot" feed for them, though. If you add too much to their diet they will go into molt.

The bunnies here get pellets mixed with whole wheat, whole barley, rolled oats, whole oats and black sunflower seeds. It is still mostly pellets, though.
