Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its challenging because bunnies are delicate animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its a good idea that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about rearing bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in actual fact they may 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 choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may 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 rabbits that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel 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 manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
