    We will not get to town for 1-2 weeks. What can I feed the rabbits until then? Thanks, Maggie

    Be careful when feeding fresh greens and veggies. SMALL amounts as a treat, if not digetive problems may occur. Do you have hay?

    If it was me I would use hay on top of the cages and in a pinch I have used sweet feed for a couple days but I wouldnt go 2 weeks.

    I don't know how many rabbits you have but...

    In the days before pellets they used hay, root crops such as beets, and grains such as oats, barley, and wheat.

    I'd fall back on a primary diet of hay. Assuming you can't get sweet feed now either, for the grain use small amounts of some cereals like quaker oats, cherrios, bran.
