Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection.

Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
