So can rabbits eat beef jerky at all?

Unfortunately, they cannot eat it. Rabbits are strictly herbivores and do not like and kind of meat food. They may attempt to nibble at it, as they do most things, but they wont go further than that.

So don’t attempt to feed them beef jerky, and stick to something they do like such as a nice veggie or hay.
