Can Rabbits Eat Alfalfa Sprouts

Alfalfa sprouts are vegetables packed with good vitamins and nutritional content. So, can rabbits eat alfalfa sprouts and are the good for them?

I used to give alfalfa sprouts to my bunnies when they were very young, under 9 months I think. Rabbits grow up fast and require a lot of extra nutrition in their first year. These sprouts are perfect as they are packed with vitamins and are especially high in calcium.

As they grow up switch it up to leafy greens that are more well-rounded and offer roughage to aid their digestive system. Keep these foods to just a small part of their diet. You need to keep the Timothy hay and pellets available for your adults to provide a balanced diet.

You can provide a cup a day of leafy greens and vegetables for them to eat, along with some pieces of fruits as treats. Rabbits are sensitive to foods rich in sugar to keep these to a minimum.
