Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in actual fact 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 choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed 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 given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies 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 proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
