Depending on your appetite you can use a whole bread, a half or even a smaller piece. It is usually advisable to get a bread that has a rectangular form with flat ends that can stand easily without falling over. If you only have access to bread with round or oval shapes than you should carefully cut of a slice from each of the ends to have a platform for the bunny to stand on.
