Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty 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 kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, 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 germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest 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 bit of cuddling.
