Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in reality they can 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 choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised 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’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
