Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because bunnies are delicate animals.
But if you know very well 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 rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures 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 manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
