What's for bunny tea tonight?

Post by Thumper2001 on Fri Feb 20, 2015 4:58 pm

I'm looking for more inspiration!

I know we've done this before but the piece of poop search function won't pull up the thread Rolling Eyes

The usual Thumbs Up Mixture of spring greens, romaine, kale, savoy cabbage, celery and radish. For supper there is a mixture of dried herbs (plantain, blackcurrant leaves, yarrow, nettle, Morrisons dandelion mix), dried petals, a tiny pinch of dried parsnip, one Bunny Nature pellet each, some vetcare plus sticks and a pinch of redigrass.

Sometimes filling the bunny supper bowls takes longer than organising human tea!

Normally we would be having Kale and Spring Greens with dried plantain, blackberry leaves and an oxbow joint care..... oh and a small amount of nuggies.... Charlie little belly can't cope with anything much more adventurous than that :-(

Well Florence has just been forced to eat some critical care mixed with banana baby food. It wasn't a textbook syringe feed and went something to the effect of wait till she attacks the syringe and then squeeze!

Bruce had nuggets and a FIBA first that I was trying to tempt Flo with.

Veg is a breakfast meal in this house and is currently greens, celery, fennel, parsley, mint, basil, coriander, rocket and watercress.

It is usually greens, including Kale, and a few herbs, she also loves celery and tomatoes although I only give tomatoes occasionally. Green beans are also a favourite. I do ring the changes though so she doesn't get bored.

Getting bored is exactly where I think I am, Jo No

But they're so blimmin' fussy!!!

I've tried rocket, coriander, parsley, green beans and I forget what else! And I've tried persevering. They just won't eat it Hissy

All they'll eat is broccoli, kale and cauliflower leaves. And occasionally carrot tops No

Frustrating!

Well yesterday was shopping day so Henners has had fresh F L Parsley, curly kale, a couple of small florets of broccoli some dried dandelion and plantain and nettle root. That was at 1-30pm at 4pm he had his toast and at 8pm he had an eggcup of mint Burgess with a dried plantain and dandelion garnish. Five minutes ago he had a fenugreek crunchie and another floret of broccoli.
There's six types of hay in his crate which needs replenishing daily, and tomorrow morning he will start the day at 8am with an eggcup of original Burgess nuggets with a garnish of dried plantain, nettle roots and fresh F L Parsley.

It wasn't very exciting last night, I thought. Effie thought it was great though as the rescue said she wasn't bothered about veggies...herbs though, are an entirely different kettle of fish! Laughing She tried to eat them all before Marley noticed.

They had carrot tops, basil, parsley and a bit of dill last night. Just what was left, really. I need to get to Morrisons today for fresh. I used to use the local sainsburys until Morrisons got the herb thing that blows really cold air over them....and I don't mean a fridge, this thing is awesome Laughing

Oh dear Thumper hun, it is difficult when you get fussy bunnies. Parsley seems to be an all round favourite. It is nice swapping ideas like this, we certainly have a lot of spoilt buns which is great.

I feel a bit sorry for Seb after reading what's on the menu for all your bunnies. As Seb is young and only been part of the family since January, he hasn't been introduced to a vast amount of veggies and herbs yet. We have been careful introducing new foods, maybe over careful worrying about his tum! He loves cabbage more than anything and also enjoys cucumber, broccoli and sprouts.

I have decided to re-introduce my pair to veggies. Willow has a very sensitive tum and so they were off them completely for a while. I bought some green beans as a treat and watching them tuck in I felt really guilty, so I've decided to give it another go...

What would you all recommend as a "bulk" veggie for buns each day? Could I use Romaine Lettuce to make up the base of the daily veggies? Just want something nice and gentle.
