I use Modesto Milling Organic Feed. All organic and no corn or molasses. The rabbits prefer it over the Purina Rabbit Chow my husband was buying before I took over. But it's expensive. Corn does make animals fat, but other grains do, too. That makes sense that your 100% grass fed rabbits would have no fat on them. Thanks for sharing your update.I actually just butchered 4 rabbits that were on 100% grass (tractor) - no pellets at all for about 1.5 weeks before butchering. They lost a little weight but when I butchered them, there was NO fat on them. They also tasted fantastic
I notice that in my normal pellets there is corn. I hate that because all commercial corn is GMO. I would think that pellets would cause an unnatural amount fat. Many pellets have molasses which encourages them to eat more than they would otherwise. I avoid those. But if you're just aiming at 'weight gain' and not overall health, they would work.
I am going to try to get enough going to feed 100% natural, no pellets, but that's a lot more work and having just brought home a lonely 3 1/2 week old bottle-baby goat, I've got a full plate right now LOL. So probably not happening any time soon.
