Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in reality they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very 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 different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require 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 bunnies you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should 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 and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
