    Question Opinions on rabbit pellets needed. :)

    My bunnies are only 3 months old at the moment so I do have some time before they will need to be on a timothy based pellets. I just want to prepare for that time. Looking at Oxbow and KMS as they are the only quality brand I can find that actually has a timothy based pellet. Thoughts?

    I should add that IF I can feed the KMS, it would be preferred as I already feed it to my pigs.

    Kms is fine to feed rabbits. It is what I feed mine and my piggies. Although you can't feed guinea pigs rabbit pellets.

    I prefer to buy in bulk when I can. SPS Is a bit pricey for me right now and since I already feed KMS it would be the best option for us.

    I can feed the Timothy pellets I'm getting from KMS for my guinea pigs for the rabbit too?
