I should probably have said something earlier but three of my baby rabbits have died. before they die they lose weight and act a little lethargic but they only stop eating right before they die. the weird thing is that their not blotted so it can’t be because of the food. The rabbit (sapphire) (she was 7 weeks and 5 days old) and was that die last night was perfectly fine the day before other then the weight loss and the other two were the same (Paola (died around the 19th of august) and Grigio(died ruffly two weeks ago)). the only thing that could be a something is that their teeth are black on the tips, other then that if they wouldn’t de dead they could be healthy. I just noticed that around the nose its wet.

I can’t. I am not feeding pellets I’m feeding leaves and grass. I asked the rabbit breeder a got my rabbits from and he said that the leaves have to much water and we should only feed the leaves to the rabbits 24 hours after picking and we should give them some pellets.

If you cannot properly care for your rabbits, then I would suggest not having them at all. Rabbits eat GRASS and hay, dried grass. Do your research on what your feeding them.

I live in a bunch of island with the closest town two hours away on boat.
Huh! Interesting situation. Now I understand your predicament more so. Well, I would suggest a grass only diet. If you ever get access to hay, I would definitely take advantage of it!
