Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in reality 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 know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require 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 need to understand that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may 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 and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
