Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in actual fact 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 beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits may 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
