Image Baby rabbit eating grass
Although it is often recommended that young rabbits should not eat any leafy green foods until they are 6 months old, the advice doesn't make sense. It may apply to rabbits kept in crowded conditions with a low fibre diet and many environmental pathogens but for rabbits with access to leafy green plants, it does not apply.

The content and analysis if the extrusions is not supplied by the manufacturer. Whole wheat kernels have been added to the mixture and will increase the fibre analysis because of the husk.
