As you can see potatoes contain quite a lot of phosphorus, a hint of calcium, quite a bit of acidic content, a hint of fat.

This means that rabbits can eat them, but not too much due to their phosphorus content, but they aren’t really good for them in the sense that they dont give bunnies anything good. A little bit a few times a week should suffice. This includes the skin, just make sure it is washed though and free of pesticides.

They cant eat them cooked though, either fried, boiled or baked.
