    Which is best? Mung beans? Others? It just seems that with sprouts having such a big variety of vitamens they would be the ideal food for rabbits consumption. What is your opinion?

    3 days without any comment so I'll change the question. Does anyone know if sprouts have any negative effects on rabbits?

    No answers because no one really knows... and that includes myself. Sorry, but common sense tells me that sprouts should be okay. Have you considered alfalfa sprouts? As with all fresh greens, use sparingly until they develop a tolerance for the sprouts.
