Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters 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 raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies 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 may also feed them bunnie 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 should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood cases because rabbits may 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
