Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because bunnies are sensitive creatures.

Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can 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 kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know 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 feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be provided 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 should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
