Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because rabbits are sensitive creatures.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy 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 bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could 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 very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– 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 may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel 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 little bit of cuddling.
