Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its not easy reason being bunnies are fragile animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its a good idea that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies 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 shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give 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 may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies 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 metal cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
