Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must 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 germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you 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 bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
