Pls someone should answer this.
I'll suggest you feed them grass, legume and use the finisher as a supplement. This is because the high starch/carbohydrate content of the finisher can cause bloat in rabbits and kill them. The fiber content is very low and rabbits need high fiber in their feed. Also the fat content is very high for rabbits.
Good one Henlus.
@Henlus, like how much broiler finisher do you recommend to avoid problems?
What is feed conversion ratio
I want to know too.

I don't know exactly. But one can experiment to know the level that will not cause problem. Alternatively you can find the carbohydrate and fat content of the feed and the maximum carbohydrate and fat required by rabbits. From there you can know the level of broiler feed to give.
