Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think are not harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood cages because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits 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.
