Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.

You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the simplest 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 little cuddling.
