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 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 choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that may 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 live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies 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 may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cages because rabbits may 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 bit of cuddling.
