Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because bunnies are fragile creatures.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its a good idea 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 creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think aren’t 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 bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood cages because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
