Feeding for Growth and Reproduction:
Professional Rabbit Feed will support 8 litters annually while encouraging consistent reproduction of does and healthy, rapid growth of bunnies. This high nutrient dense formula permits optimum performance.
Feeding for Show Rabbits:
- Does - just after kindling: 2 to 4 ounces the first day to prevent caked udders then gradually increase 1 ounce daily to free choice by end of first week
- Does - at weaning: 1 to 2 ounce for three days to reduce milk production and prevent caked udders or remove feed for 24 hours and feed 3 to 5 ounces the following day.
- Gestating Does (not lactating): 3 to 6 ounces/day - adjust to maintain desired weight.
- Weaned Bunnies: Free choice.
