– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure you to offer protection for them.
