Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner 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 rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they are 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 reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must 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 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 bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising 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.
