Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection.

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 learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they are 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 breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
