Title: How much rabbit feed do you do in a month?

EviesTulipsRabbitry - September 17, 2010 01:03 PM (GMT)
How much rabbit feed do you do in a month? Pound of bag of feed, How much feed per rabbit and how long does it last you per bag of feed in a month?

And do you put anything else in feed rather then pellets?

Thanks again! Misty :barbara:

I go through 6 50lb bags of food a month. My Mini Rex have the 5 oz Easy Crocks that get filled to the top. My English Angoras have a 10 oz Easy Crock that gets filled to the top. The Rex have a (2) 10 oz Easy Crock that gets filled to the top. The Giant Angoras and the Flemish Giants have the 20oz Easy Crocks filled to the top.

Hope that gives you an idea.

I go through 4-6 50lb bags of feed a month depending on my litters.

About 2-3 50 pound bags a month. I also give my rabbits a show conditioner that one of my local vendors sell, and my rabbits occasionaly get oats.

I go through 4 50lb bags and do use a supplement for some of them :).

I go through about 1-2 50lb bags a month. It depends on if and how many litters I have.

I put oats in my pellets, but very little. And Calf-Manna for the babies.

Alrighty! Thanks All!

I go threw about 1 to 1/2 bags a month. I give about 1/2 cup of feed daily. Younger babies (Jr) or nursing mother's get more. I feed mine Manna Pro at the moment and oats and I just bought sunflowers.

I go through about 2 - 50 lb bags a month. Sometimes I will get a third just for security, but I have since cut back on my herd....

I might go through 50 lbs. a month? With usually about 10 adults and then juniors/pre-juniors. My rabbits each get 1/2 cup of feed daily with supplements. :)

I go through a #50 a week. I have about 10 older (which include 2 Checkered Giants and Silver Martens) so they eat a lot, and about a half a dozen young ones (on free feed) and 2 litters.

Wow! How some can even do it! Must be hard or have good jobs to feed all the rabbits.

3 to 4 50 lb bags of food. Depending on how the month falls.

We use 6-7 50lb bags a month. Our Hollands get about 1/2 cup feed each, with moms & babies getting unlimited feed. Some of the rabbits get supplements and oatmeal.

A 50# bag last 5 days when I'm in breeding season. So about 6 bags a month. I'm currently at about 1 bag a week since I have less litters now. I buy 10 bags at a time. Generally everyone gets 1/2 a cup of food (both mini lops and woolies). I have several woolies who are on free feed as well as all my mini lop bucks. All juniors and litters are on free feed as well.

I go through around 4 bags a month that's with 8 rabbits free fed and around 5 or so bags a month with litters. I am hoping to cut bag.... They get like 1/2 to 3/4 cups a day for Hollands than any other breed is free fed since they are just pets.
So that's 12 Hollands
4 mini lops (pets)
3 Lionheads (pets)
and 1 English Lop (Pet)

I feed 1/2 cup to most of my mini lops, except for juniors and litters - they get free feed. If I don't have that many litters, I'll go through 4 bags of feed a month. If I have a lot of litters I'll go through 5-6 bags of feed a month.

A bag is 50lbs.
