Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat 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 rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not great for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit 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 must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood hutches 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 bit of cuddling.
