Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think are not harmful, in fact 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 kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You should 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 grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
