Rabbits are high maintenance creatures 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 choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies 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 kept for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood cases because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
