No. Rabbits get enough salt from their pellets.

Some rabbits enjoy them, some don't. If you are using a commericially available rabbit pellet as a base for their diet, they do not need a salt lick. If they seem to enjoy it (I use mineral licks instead of just salt) then you can keep one clipped on the cage, it should last them quite a while, just replace it as it disappears or looks "yucky".

I leave a salt/mineral lick in the cage at all times. I see my rabbit lick it from time to time, but I figure it's best to have it available than to not give him one. When it starts to look gross, I change it out with a new one. They are pretty cheap!
