Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
