Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Create an attractive display by covering a piece of sturdy cardboard with wrapping paper, then plastic food wrap. Stretch and secure with tape. Or cover cardboard with foil or cooking parchment paper. Give your bunnies some grass to sit in. Color shredded coconut by shaking it with a few drops of green food color in a food-storage plastic bag.
