A mix of nutritious grasses and vitamin rich hedgerow ingredients, Excel Nature’s Blend Nuggets prevent selective feeding where rabbits pick out the sweet high sugar elements of the diet and leave the nutritious and fibre rich elements.
These nuggets are made with our unique blend of grass, herbs, plants and other forage ingredients, to replicate your rabbits’ natural foraging.
In crafting our nuggets, we took inspiration from the Great British hedgerow to recreate their ideal diet in the wild. Rabbits are adept at drawing fibre and key nutrients from a wide range of sources, and that’s a principle we’ve always strived to follow.
When the crop reaches the perfect age it is cut and dried within 3 hours. This allows any excess water to evaporate before being harvested and captures all of the natural goodness. The grass is then blended with a range of hedgerow ingredients such as nettle leaves, lemon balm and dandelion. These are all packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals, as well as being deliciously tasty and adding variety into your rabbits’ diet.
What’s more, because the recipe is based on our classic Excel formula, we’re confident that your rabbits will just love it!

We hope your rabbits enjoy their Burgess Excel rabbit food! We’re so confident they will that we offer a palatability (a.k.a tastiness!) guarantee on our nuggets. This means if your rabbits don’t enjoy their food, you can return it to us for a refund. Find out more about how this works, including full terms and conditions here.
Remember that good quality feeding hay and/or grass should make up the majority of your rabbits’ diet and should be available at all times. Rabbits should also be fed a small portion of Excel nuggets, the occasional Excel Nature Snack to add variety and encourage emotional enrichment, and a small amount of leafy greens each day. Fresh, clean water should always be available. Please talk to your vet for further information.
If you are currently feeding a muesli-style food to your rabbits you should gradually transfer them onto a hay and nugget-based feeding plan over a period of between 14 and 28 days. You can do this by gradually reducing the amount of muesli and increasing the proportion of Excel Adult Rabbit Nuggets with Mint until they have completely replaced the mix.
Always ensure you are monitoring your rabbits’ weight to ensure a healthy weight. If you are ever unsure you should seek veterinary advice.
