Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because rabbits are fragile creatures.
But if you really know 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 rabbits 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 cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not harmful, in fact they may 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 bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits 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 feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
