Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in reality 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 kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
