Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its challenging because bunnies are delicate animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its a good idea that you discover all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in actual fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood hutches because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
