Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its not easy because rabbits are delicate creatures.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its a good idea that you discover all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in reality they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. 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 vegetables 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 can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest 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 cuddling.
