– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier.
