How to keep them "fit"

June 1st, 2006, 11:56 AM
ITs summer now and the rabbits are on their diet of grass and hay, (I dont feed commercial pellets in summer.)
However they just eat and eat and eat (as rabbits do) i have noticed that they are starting to get a bit "chubby" Seeing as though most of them are females, and their dewlaps are starting to get bigger, how can i ensure that they dont get too fat?
THe males are staying trim just looking healthier ( dont worry there is no way the females are preggo, the males are all neutered)

Are they getting enough run around time? My lady super binkies this time of year.....She runs like a mad woman.

yup, they are getting tons of excersise, perhaps the clovers?? are they fattening? The males are eating them too though, thats what boggles me. Im at a loss for ideas here, they have a HUGE outdoor pen that they spend parts of the day in, and they have free run in the house too????
