Turnips are a root vegetable commonly grown in temperate climates worldwide for its white, bulbous taproot.
Small, tender varieties are grown for human consumption, while larger varieties are grown as feed for livestock.
So can rabbits eat turnips at all?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data in particular their sugar, calcium, fat, phosphorus, sodium and acidic content
As you can see phosphorus contains a little phosphorus, an awful lot of calcium, quite a bit of acid, a hint of fat, sugar and fibre.
This means that rabbits can eat turnips but not too much as their calcium content is high.
A few segments a week is quite sufficient. They can also cause bloat if they have too much of it as well.
They can eat the tops and greens as well, just make sure they dont eat too much as well.
