Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in actual fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way 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 rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. 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 rabbits that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
