Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult reason being bunnies 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 keeping rabbits then its a good idea that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in 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 beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed 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 can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest 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 cuddling.
