– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand 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 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 and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them.
