Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection.

Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
