I have had rabbits for years now but I have never fed them beetroots. My neighbour has a large veggie garden and offers me lettuce, carrots, tomatoes etc. Which is great because I have guinea pigs too.
Today she asked me if I wanted some beetroot tops. Are these ok for rabbits? I don't want to make them sick.

I found this online:

Beets should be ok, although they are HIGH in sugar, it seems to be a good sugar. Sparsley fed I am guessing they are ok, but I'd check on the House Rabbits website to make sure!!!!
