Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. 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 find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit 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 provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
