Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. 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 would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them.
