Can rabbits eat peas from pea pods?

Post by BugsBunny on Tue Jul 23, 2013 2:43 pm

Just wondering if it is safe to give Dougal a couple pf peas from pea pods? are they safe and is it best to wait until he is 7 months old before trying them, he is almost 6 months now.

My bun LOVE them and are having them most nights at the moment with veg allowance! ..I take out the peas and put in the bowl separately because little one is 13 weeks and he eats the peas - Mum eats the pods I also hide some in their 'selection box' of fresh grasses, bramble leaves, Sowthistle leaves, bit of dandelion etc they have in their secure run at night.

Just remember that Peas are high in sugar and are also a source of protein so are quite rich for rabbits. So feed sparingly!

Can someone check the links for this post please?
When I clicked on the link from my email at first I got latest reply plus a few links at the bottom which looked like happyhoppers and I clicked on baby rabbits - what I got was horrible, featuring the gastronomic habbits of some other animals - needless to say they did not have information on live baby rabbits or anything pleasant - you can guess the kind of thing.

THANK YOU

I am not sure what you mean about the links. I only ever access the posts via the forum pages.

I think she means the  'Similar topics' that are usually at the bottom of the thread that you see when you click on the email link before you log in. They are nothing to do with Happy Hoppers forum as far as I know.
