Is it normal that my baby rabbits eat their mother's poop?

Report as

Yes, all rabbits eat poop! There are two kinds of poop and the one that is soft is the one they eat and it is healthy for them. They are called cecotropes. There is bacteria in them that is are essential nutrients. They can protect the bunny from harmful pathogens. Most times they eat it in the morning and at night.
