Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because bunnies are fragile animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing 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 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 kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. 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 non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages 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.
