Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not 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 rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– 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 rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you must 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 cages because rabbits 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 cuddling.
