Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may 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 may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal 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 care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
