Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because rabbits are fragile animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its highly 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 ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies 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 healthy. 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 rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you must 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 cases because rabbits may 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.
