Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because rabbits are sensitive creatures.
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 highly recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in actual 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 beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables 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 or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits can 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
