Chives are the smallest species of the edible onion genus and is a perennial plant, native to Europe, Asia and North America.
They are found in grocery stores and supermarkets all across the world and also grown in domestic home gardens. They are often used in cooking where the scapes and flowerbuds are diced and used in many different dishes.
So can rabbits eat chives at all?
Lets take a look at the nutritional data and find out more about them. In particular, the sodium, calcium, sugar, phosphorus, sodium, fibre, and fat content are of particular interest as far as bunnies are concerned.
As you can see chives contains quite a lot of phosphorus, a lot of calcium, are a little acidic and and contain a hint of fat and fibre.
This means that rabbits cannot eat a lot of chives. Eating small amounts on a weekly basis at the most is quite enough for them, due to their calcium and phosphorus content.
