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

Their back legs are 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 different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be 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 mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may 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 may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies 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 little bit of cuddling.
