Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in reality 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 bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may 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 reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should 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.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
