Becoming a bunny owner can be fun 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 happy owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its highly recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in fact they can 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 raising rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them rabbit 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 given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest 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 bit of cuddling.
