Almost empty bowl

This bowl shows the components of muesli mixes that rabbits seldom eat. Close inspection shows that pellets, whole grains, and husks are left behind. Most owners discard this food and replenish the bowl, so the rabbit never eats pellets and whole grains. The pellets often contain the vitamin and mineral supplement that is used to balance out the deficiencies (calcium, vitamins A and D) in other ingredients in the mixture. The husks of the grains contribute to the fibre content. Rejecting these food items mean that the rabbit is eating an unbalanced, fibre deficient diet despite the analysis on the side of the packet.
