Image Sunflower seeds
Sunflower seeds are not a food item that would normally be available for rabbits to eat. The kernels are high in fat, deficient in vitamin A and calcium with a highly inverse calcium to phosphorus ratio. Although the occasional seed isn't harmful, there is no need to include them in muesli mixes. Some rabbits enjoy the hulls, which have a high fibre content but no other nutritional value.

Whole grains are often included in muesli mixes. Because of the fibrous shell, the addition of whole grain increases the overall fibre content of the mixture so the analysis on the side of the packet looks good. This is misleading as rabbits seldom eat the grain and if they do, they leave the shell in the bottom of the bowl.
