Lucy bunny protects her Probios treat

The bunnies most favored treat is a Probios. It's a horse biscuit so we break it into smaller pieces, but the hay digesting systems are similar enough that it is healthy for bunnies, too.

Whoever finishes first checks out the others to see if some crumbs might have fallen on the floor or if there's a piece big enough in their mouths to snatch. So when we give it to them, Lucy runs away and eats her treat by herself so she gets all of her piece. At the end of this short clip, you'll see that Bunya and Ethel don't move from where they get their pieces, just munching rapidly.

This was the apple flavor Probios (the horse biscuit also comes in peppermint, which they love, too).

Lucy will do the same thing with hay cubes - haul them out of the hay cube box and over to the same spot to dine alone.
