Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat 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 rabbits. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed 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 may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood cases because rabbits may eat on the wood.
