Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need 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 need to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies 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 little cuddling.
