– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not best 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 raised for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, 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 germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them.
