Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in 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 know.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can 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 bunnies that are kept for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow 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 would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest 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 little bit of cuddling.
