Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult because bunnies are sensitive creatures.
But if you know very well 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 rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits 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 cuty creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in reality they can 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 make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegans, 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 germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
