Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need 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 need to understand that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
