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 may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You should 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 germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood hutches because rabbits may eat on the wood.
