Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection.

Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them rabbit 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 should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
