– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
