    What age should my bunny be to eat veggies and sometimes fruits?

    As of right now my bunny is about 3 months and im wondering how old he has to be to eat veggies. I hear a lot of diffrent ages but im not sure what to belive. If any one who is a experienced bunny owner wants to hlep out that would be great!!

    Your bunny can eat vege from any age after being weaned from its mothers milk. As you now own it (so im guessing it doesnt drink from mum anymore), you can feed it on vege, as this would be what it ate in the wild. Please DO NOT feed it lettuce, as even though it loves the taste, it can actually poison bunnies... cabbage is ok though.
    Bear in mind, that a sudden change in a bunnies diet can make it ill, so remember to keep the supply of fresh hay up, as well as plenty of water, and lots of pellets. Introduce the vege a little at a time, and find out what the bunny likes best- my bunny loves mini sweetcorn- the kind thats used in chinese cooking? And she actually isnt that interested in carrots!
    Hope this helps!

      A bunny can start eating veggies at 12-weeks of age. Romaine Lettuce is fine (No iceberg or light-colored leaf).

    He is at the right age now - 12 weeks is when you can start introducing veggies slowly. I have a couple of hubs, with regards to feeding bunnies and rabbits if you want further info.
