Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– 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 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 want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest 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.
