Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging reason being bunnies are sensitive animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in actual fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should 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 healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest 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 little bit of cuddling.
