What are the ideal percentages of protein, fat, etc. for growing rabbits? And what are the ideal percentages for show rabbits?
I have been feeding 17% protein and 1.5% fat, but my young rabbits aren't growing and I can feel the backbones of all of my rabbits. I think my feed doesn't have enough fat. I was going to find a new brand to buy and wondered what percentages I should be looking for.

That fat seems low to me. Most rabbit feeds I have used and looked at have been 2.5 or more I think. 16-17% protein is fine. Find a feed with higher fat and that should solve your problem unless there is an underlying problem that is causing them to not gain weight.
