Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits 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 live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you should ensure you offer protection for them.
