Can you feed a rabbit collard greens?

Vegetables for Rabbits. Suggested vegetables to feed include carrots, carrot tops, parsley, broccoli, collard greens, mustard greens, dandelion greens, turnip greens, endive, romaine lettuce, kale, and spinach. However, kale, spinach, and mustard greens are high in oxalates so their feeding should be limited.

Similarly, you may ask, what greens are best for rabbits?

Vegetables that should be considered as part of your rabbit's diet:
  • Alfalfa, radish, and clover sprouts.
  • Asparagus.
  • Basil.
  • Beet greens.
  • Bell Peppers (green, red, yellow…)
  • Bok Choy.
  • Broccoli. Some bunnies may find this a rather “gassy” veggie. If diarrhea occurs, remove from diet.
  • Brussels Sprouts.

What not to feed a pet rabbit?

Rabbits don't naturally eat root vegetables/fruit. Carrots/fruit are high in sugar and should only be fed in small amounts as occasional treats. Rabbits need mainly hay and/or grass, some leafy greens and a small, measured amount of pellets. See rabbit meal planner.
