Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in actual fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are 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 bunnies you need to know that they are vegans, so you can’t 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 germinate more powerful and healthier. 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 rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest 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.
