Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not harmful, in actual fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies 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 give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest 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 cuddling.
