Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood hutches because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
