    All brands of rabbit pellets are going to weigh different. You pretty much have to have a scale to figure out how much to feed.

    No, a cup is not a measure of weight as well as of volume. Think about it. Is a cup of feathers going to weigh the same as a cup of lead?

    You need a scale. Inexpensive ones are readily available and very handy to have around.

    never weighed pellets. But I'd be willing to bet, if you figured about 60 pounds to a bushel, and a bushel is about 8 gallons, you will be in the general ballpark.
