Becoming a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult because rabbits 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 highly recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think aren’t 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 beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood cases because bunnies 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
