Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the simplest 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 little cuddling.
