Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult because rabbits are sensitive creatures.
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 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.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think are not harmful, in actual 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 rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood cages because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest 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.
