I am reading up on raising rabbits now and have been interested in the idea of growing wheat grass for bunnies. I have read some posts that say that rabbits love it but I think they were fed the wheat grass from weaning time. There are many systems available to grow your own wheat grass - takes about 2 weeks. Some are large enough to use to feed cattle. It is always a good idea to use what is growing locally, but in winter, if you live in an area that is cooler, there may be less of a choice.

Our original 4 eat grass and Hay from the yard and greens we grow inside. Our new 4 that are only 4-5 months old are just starting on a few greens.
We start them slow on a leaf or 2 a day make sure they don't get diarrhea, give there digestive tract time to build up proper bacteria and enzymes to digest greens.
Currently we are growing oats, buckwheat, purple top turnips, collard greens and lettuce. Any and all advice welcome.
