Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may 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 very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give 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 may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest 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 bit of cuddling.
