It depends... alfalfa in pellets, and in hay will lead to more hay waste as the rabbits sort through the alfalfa hay to find the long stem fiber , [ long stem fiber is low in pelleted feeds] - I personally prefer to feed a grass hay with alfalfa based pellets .
meat-mutt rabbits, a few laying hens.
