Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies 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 and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
