    Everything in moderation though.

    People who know much more about rabbits than I do have said that too much green stuff will give them the runs.

    as a sole food source, corn leaves do not have enough nutritive value to sustain rabbits. as something added to a more complete diet, no problem.

    Hello-- We raise rabbits and we give them a "green treat" daily. I think it is super and I'm sure they do as well. :D We started out just giving them a small amount and a little more the next day and a little more the next day....We have never had any problems with the runs. Our bunnies get straw about every other day. The rabbits do a great job of eating what we cannot of the herb garden. Peppermint, spearmint, cilantro, raspberry leaves, broccoli stems, they love it all! Of course, the first time they try something new I like to start out with a small portion--just to be safe. In fact, you can search the web for lists of good and bad rabbit food. This is a great site with lots of information. Supplement List and Rabbit Info It will definitely improve your popularity among your bunnies! :haha: We can hardly get into the cages, they get so excited! I say go for it! It will even cut back a little on feed costs. Good Luck! --Bobbie
