Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must 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 grow 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 rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
