Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty 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 make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t 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 can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits 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 bit of cuddling.
