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. Wild rabbits start to eat grass and other plants as soon as they emerge from the nest.
