Hoppy Fall and Hoppy Halloween!!!

This year is certainly flying by. It’s hard to believe fall is here. It’s getting dark earlier and getting much chillier.

This is the time of year for beautiful fall crops, especially squash like pumpkins, acorn squash, and butternut squash. Did you know your bunny can eat all of these squash as long as they are raw, and you remove the seeds? They may not like the skin but the flesh is very tasty. Make sure you feed them sparingly as squash is high in carbs and sugar. Feeding your bunny 2 tablespoons a couple times a week is fine. Pumpkin seeds and other squash seeds aren’t safe for bunnies because they can get stuck between their teeth. Feeding them squash a few times a week is a nice treat. Your bunny may not like it the first time they try it, but give them a second chance and see if they don’t change their mind.

I love Halloween and have always carved my pumpkins to look like rabbits and cats. You can also use stencils and carve just the skin. Painting bunnies onto pumpkins of all sizes is another cute way to decorate for fall. You can find many stencils and patterns online to make bunny pumpkins for Halloween so you can have the most talked about pumpkins in your neighborhood.

Pumpkins come in a beautiful array of colors besides orange. You can find them in white, brown, green, and multicolored. Don’t forget to get extra pumpkins to make meals for yourself this fall.

Speaking of pumpkins, we hope your bunnies will enjoy our fall pumpkin recipe.

Pumpkin Salad

(Serves 2 bunnies)


1 – Small Pumpkin (not mini pumpkin)

1 cup – Baby kale leaves

½ bunch – Dandelion leaves

¼ head – Radicchio

3 – 4 Tbls. chopped pumpkin flesh


Cut top off pumpkin about ¼ of the way down. Scoop out strings and seeds. Discard seeds, or set aside to roast for yourself or some lucky birds.

Scoop out 3 – 4 Tbls. of the pumpkin flesh after you’ve removed all the seeds and strings. Don’t scrape through the outside skin, only scoop out the inner layer, and then dice it.

Chop or tear kale leaves, dandelion leaves, and radicchio.

Fill hollowed out pumpkin with mixed chopped greens and diced pumpkin flesh.

After your bunnies finish their salad you can let them play with their pumpkin “bowl”; just make sure they don’t eat too much of the flesh at once. Let them have a little more in a few days. Keep the cut pumpkin refrigerated.

If you’d like to give your pumpkin seeds to your backyard birds and wildlife they are very easy to prepare. Simply rinse the seeds in cold water to remove the majority of the pulp. Then roast on a non-stick or lightly sprayed pan for 20 – 30 minutes at 300 degrees. Stir every few minutes to keep from burning and sticking. Once the seeds have cooled you can put them out whole, or crush with a rolling pin or food processor so smaller birds can enjoy them.
