If your rabbit is two months old - it shouldn't be any bigger than the size of a football. If not, then the place where you got her/him ripped you off.... It happens a lot. Dwarfs, I believe, sell more because their "dwarfs" and of course are supposed to be a lot smaller than regular rabbits. The breeder could have lied or the person at the pet store just 'guessed' what it was.
Baby rabbits should have unlimited access to alfalfa hay and high-quality pellets. You can start offering fresh leafy greens in tiny amounts at 12 weeks (but observe for diarrhoea or other health problems). Between 7 and 13 months, slowly transition rabbits to an adult rabbit's diet. See the related question below for more info and helpful links.
A healthy rabbit diet includes unlimited access to water and to hay (because rabbits need to eat a lot of hay in order to stay healthy), as well as rabbit pellets and fresh leafy greens daily. How much pellets and greens you feed a rabbit depends on the rabbit's weight and age.
Baby rabbits should have unlimited access to pellets; at 12 weeks you can introduce greens in tiny portions, but it shouldn't be a big part of the rabbit's diet until they're an adult (1 year old); treats shouldn't be introduced until 6 months or so; from 7 months to 12 months, the rabbit should transition to an adult's diet.
For an adult 6 pound rabbit, the House Rabbit Society recommends 1/4-1/2 cup of pellets daily and at least 2 cups of greens (the more greens, the less pellets). If you want to give your rabbit a treat, you can offer small amounts (no more than 2 tablespoons per day for a 6 pound rabbit) of fresh fruit or vegetables.

If the rabbit is:
- a baby: 1/2 a handful
- an adult: 1 handful
Water: Like all animals rabbits need water to survive! You need:
- water bottle
Fill the water bottle half way for one rabbit (because if you fill it all the way to the top they will NOT finish it! hang the water bottle to the side of the rabbits cage/hutch.
Rabbits should be able to get to water at all times. The water bottle should be filled up with fresh water every day and should be cleaned out weekly.
hi! A middle sized hand ful of dry food is sufficient for one rabbit. However, Vets, and I, recommend that in the summer months, no dry food is given to rabbits. All they need is a large amount of dry grass, and lots of green plants. dry food can make rabbits become very overweight and it can cause problems in the mouth. Alfy x
a little hand full 2 times a day
A rabbit's diet should include good quality pellets, fresh hay (alfalfa, timothy or oat), water and fresh vegetables. Anything other than that is a "treat" and should be given in limited amounts. From www.rabbit.org (It has just about everything you need to know!) GOOD LUCK :) -TaraBelle
A two-month-old rabbit should have unlimited access to fresh water, alfalfa hay, and rabbit pellets.
At there months, you can start introducing certain fresh dark leafy greens in a daily salad (like Romaine lettuce, dandelion greens, carrot greens, parsley, cilantro, dill). Introduce the salad gradually. Start with small portion sizes, just a few bites. Start with one plant at at time: feed a tiny bit one day, wait a day, feed a bit more, wait a day, etc. Wait a week or two before trying the next new green. Watch the rabbit's health for any adverse effects (like gas, pain, runny stool, etc.) Research each plant online to make sure it's safe for bunnies first.
Between 7 and 12 months, the rabbit can gradually move to an adult diet.

Baby rabbits, once they're weaned, should have unlimited 24/7 access to hay (alfalfa, or an alfalfa-timothy mix) and high-quality pellets. Because they're growing, they're allowed to eat as much as they want. Fresh vegetables, however, are another matter. Treats (like fruit, and sugary vegetables like carrot) shouldn't be given to rabbits at all until they're around 6 months of age, and then they should be strictly limited to just a bite or two because too many treats can make a rabbit very sick. Fresh leafy greens (like Romaine lettuce, basil, and carrot tops) can be introduced at around 12 weeks, but they should be introduced very gradually: one at a time, in very small amounts, with slow increases and changes, and watch for signs of ill-health! See the related questions below for more info and helpful links.
A bunny should have unlimited hay (not alfalfa). A cup or so of greens/veggies per day. You may also feed 1/4 cup or so of plain pellets if you wish.
A two month rabbit could eat a lot of food in one day.
feed your rabbit as much as he needs
6 cups and a carrot
i have a 12.5 pound french lop eared rabbit. He eats about 1 1/3 cup of rabbit feed each night. And a little bit of parsley through the day. You can feed your rabbit a little over a cup every day at the same time, or feed him/her half in the morning and the remaining at night. BUT be sure to stay with the feeding routine. If you feed your rabbit all his/her food at the same time, remember what time you fed your rabbit and feed him/her that same time the next day.
You can have a relative or friend take care of your rabbit. Some pet stores offer animal boarding services, so they could take care of it. Make sure you write a list of how to care for your rabbit to give to the person who will take care of it. Here are some things you should list: * How much hay to feed it * How many fruits or vegetables each day * What kind of veggies or fruits * How many pellets you feed it * How often to clean the bedding * How often(if needed) they should brush the rabbit * How much bedding to put in * How much exercise the rabbit needs each day * Where you exercise your rabbit
yes, they can, as straw is better for bedding than 1/2 food.you should feed your rabbit about 50% of the daily food should be hay/timothy hay/alfalfa hay (for pregnant or growing rabbits). and the other 50% should be 16-18% rabbit feed (pellets).feed resource's:*no food, cant get to the store today?answer: feed your rabbit 1 handful (NO MORE) cracked corn or oat meal (UN cooked). this should no be continued for more than 2 days!* what type of pellets should be fed?answer: -16% rabbit pellets: before shows or to slim down your rabbit.- 17% rabbit pellets: casual feed.- 18% rabbit pellets: fatten up your rabbit.*what type of hay?answer: alfalfa: pregnant or growing rabbitstimothy: to fatten up rabbitnormal 1st cut hay: casual hay feed.ALWAYS FEED YOU RABBIT TREATS AND FRUIT/ VEGGIES DAILY!thank you
I wouldn't recommend it. It is a foreign plant to rabbits. You should not feed it that sorry... Rabbits LOVE bananas though!
You can feed your rabbit a variety of things such as pellets and alfalfa or timothy hay. You can also go to a local pet store and purchase rabbit food.
twice a day.
feed it pie
2 pounds of food
The only thing that you can feed a new born rabbit is milk. You should use a bottle feed or a syringe to feed the rabbit.
Whatever you normally feed your rabbit is probably fine; Rabbit Chow, or whatever.
No, it will get indigestion. Rabbit pellets are much better
just normal rabbit food, only not as much
It depends on the breed of rabbit - Dwarfs should eat about 2 to 3 oz. Flemish should get a cup of feed.
As much as it can eat. When she's weaned the babies, gradually reduce the amount of food it gets.
you can feed them alfalfa or timothy hay
