Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cases because rabbits may 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
