Being a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its challenging reason being rabbits are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its recommended 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 cute cuddy creatures that you may think are not 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 kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You must 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 must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies 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 little cuddling.
