Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in actual 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 beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give 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 wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest 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.
