The aim of this study was to evaluate the digestibility in the hare of two commercial feeds with or without oat straw fed ad libitum. Four couples bred hares were fed ad libitum with two commercial pellet (first pellet: crude protein 17% and crude fibre 21%; second pellet: crude protein 15% and crude fibre 23%) with or without oat straw. Feed intake was not significantly influenced by the addition of oat straw, although the hares decreased the pellet intake in presence of oat straw. The coefficients of digestibility were higher in 15% p - 23% f .pellet than in 17% p - 21% f. pellet. The oat straw did not decrease the digestibility of the organic matter, probably in relationship to a best production and utilization of soft faeces.
