Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because rabbits are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its a good idea that you discover 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 cute cuddy creatures that you may think are not harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner 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 bunnies they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small houses 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 meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t 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 may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising 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.
