Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables 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 given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should ensure you offer protection for them.
