Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection.

Their back legs are 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 learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
