Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection.

Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood cases because rabbits 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 proper housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
