Rabbits changing eating habits

Hi, we adopted a beautiful pair of bunnies who we love dearly earlier this year. We are new to bunnies tho and I noticed this week that they have suddenly changed how much green veggies they are having every day, going from scoffing it down to just having a little. They are still happily munching through pellets and a truck load of hay. With the change in weather they have both also started growing their winter coat and I wondered if this is normal for rabbits and whether this is all in somehow connected or should I be worried that something is wrong. Thank you in advance!

Has their output (poop) remained the same? Moulting this time of year is certainly normal.

What green veggies do you offer as standard and how much pellets? What is the feeding schedule?

Change in feeding definitely needs watching, if in doubt, always worth a trip to your nearest bunny-savvy vet.

Thanks for your reply. Poo output is absolutely the same. They have the mint nuggets, I can't remember the brand right now, roughly an eggcup each a day.
