Bunnies will eat potato chips, but they are really very bad for them.

The fat content of potato chips is far too high, as well as salt, starch, chemical flavourings, oils, preservatives -- all that is really bad for rabbits! Rabbits get enough of these things in their pellets, so otherwise you should only feed fresh foods (hay, dark-coloured leafy greens, and fruits and vegetables as an occasional treat).

Potato in any form is not healthy for rabbits and is best avoided!

If you want to give your rabbit a treat, stick to a bite of fresh fruit or vegetable like carrot, apple, berry, or squash.

Potato chips can make a rabbit sick because it's so unhealthy. See the related questions below for more info and helpful links.
