Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because bunnies are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its a good idea that you learn all you can in rearing 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 might think aren’t harmful, in fact they can 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 make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not 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 healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cases because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Rearing 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 cuddling.
