Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not harmful, in actual fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept 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 not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
