Rabbits will chew on your sunflower plants unless you protect them while they're small. You can just make a cylinder out of chicken wire or hardware cloth and set it over the sunflower. Once they've grown up to 12-18", the leaves will be out of reach of the rabbits and you can remove the protection.

Best wishes with your sunflowers!
