Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in actual fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. 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 need to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and 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 protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest 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 cuddling.
