Being a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because bunnies are fragile creatures.
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 raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner 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 bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood hutches because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
