Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult reason being bunnies are sensitive animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its recommended that you discover all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in 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 make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them rabbit 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 provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish 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 protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits may 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 little bit of cuddling.
