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

Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cages because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
