Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great 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 raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them.
