Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could 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 very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need 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 must be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
