Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in actual 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 beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, 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 healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest 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.
