I have; they are supposed to help with bigger litters. I know I see rabbits in my gravel drive picking up pebbles that I assume have salt from snow residue on them. I think it's hard for them to find salt in most habitats.

I put sulfa salt in my running pen and had 6 rabbits in it when I stopped running my dogs in April. I have trapped and released 8 rabbits in the last two days! Probably still 45 or 50 more to release before the count is down enough to put dogs back in my enclosure! I attribute the numbers, at least partially, to the salt.
