Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection.

Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cases because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest 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.
