Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection.

Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that can 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 reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give 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 must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
