Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think are not harmful, in fact they may 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 may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must 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 or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie 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 cuddling.
