Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might 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 beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not good 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 the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You should 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 grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood hutches because bunnies may 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 bit of cuddling.
