Thank you.
I decided to put Char back last night.
She gained 6 grams since yesterday AM so she is getting nutrients.
The family cages plowed through they're ACV water. Both drank almost a whole bottle.
One of my bucks even drank half of his so I think it's a hit.

What is ACV water?
Apple Cider Vinegar water.... As was suggested by @Baymule so I did a bunch of reading online and it sounds like a really great supplement.
They like the taste of it so they drink more which in turn keeps them more hydrated and reduces the stench of their pee. Also protects them from bad bacteria in their guts which in turn helps with prevention of a number of diseases.
You only need a couple Tbsp per gallon to get the benefits

OK. I used to mix cider vinegar into my horses' bran mash with stuff to avoid sand colic. Giving vinegar to horses is also supposed to be good to keep horses from developing stones. They seemed to like it too.

Yes I think help with urinary infections in rabbits was mentioned too!
