Being a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because rabbits are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its a good idea that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
