Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand 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 raising bunnies then its recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in 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 need to know.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can 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 live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know 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 give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest 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 bit of cuddling.
