Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You should 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 or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
