Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think are not harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. 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 may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not 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 and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits may 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 bit of cuddling.
