Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good 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 mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you must 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 cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
