    Technically they are called cecotropes and aren't actually feces. This is good nutrition for them and perfectly normal.

    Here is an article titled "Rabbits: The Mystery of Poop"

    yes they have special types of poop, usually in the morning, and eat them. They are stickier than regular poop.

    They don't HAVE to, but they do it when they aren't getting proper nutrition. If you feed your rabbit all of the things it needs, it won't eat it's poop.
