Will rabbits eat cucumber plants?

Some people say wild rabbits won't eat your cucumbers, while other people say they will. Maybe it depends on environment (if there's lots of other good food around, maybe they won't), and individuality.

Cucumbers are not recommended for pet rabbits because they're low in nutritional value and they're too watery. Some people feed small pieces of cucumber to their rabbit as a treat. Treats should always be strictly limited, one reason being that too many will reduce your rabbit's appetite for hay, which it needs to eat tons of every day in order to stay healthy.

"Wild cucumber" (Echinocystis lobata) should never be given to a rabbit because it's toxic.

Pay close attention to your rabbit, and if cucumber gives it diarrhea or gas or other health problems, do not give it any more.

The House Rabbit Society recommends no more than 2 tablespoons of treat food per day for a normal, healthy 6 pound rabbit. See the related question below for more details about a healthy rabbit diet.
