– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies 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 or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure you to offer protection for them.
