Hello. I recently started feeding Euonymus Fortunei (common name Wintercreeper) as part of a forage mix to my New Zealand herd. I wasn't able to find anything conclusive online regarding its safety, but did find a few sources mentioning that it was commonly grazed upon by wild rabbits. Based on this, we tried it on a test rabbit first, then offered to the rest of the herd after a few weeks with no negative effects. So far the rabbits really seem to enjoy it. We do NOT feed them the berries!

(I'm just posting this to share my experience feeding this plant, but assume NO responsibility if you choose to feed it and have a negative outcome.)

If you have experience feeding Euonymus fortunei, please share here!
