About Rabbit Droppings

CecalFecalYou will notice two types of droppings that your rabbit does a hard round ball and a softer ball containing bits of partially digested food.

These second type of droppings are called cecotropes, these softer balla rabbits need to eat in order to extract the maximum amount of nutrients from their food.

Remember if you see a rabbit eating its dropping this is a normal, natural and essential behaviour for your rabbit’s good health.

This is the reason why you want to have a litter tray in your hutch instead of keeping your rabbit on a wire mesh floor where the droppings pass through to a pan below, making them inaccessible.
