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

Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can 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 proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
