Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may 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 beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little 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 kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
