Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection.

Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cases because rabbits can 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 bit of cuddling.
