Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy reason being rabbits are sensitive animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising 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 need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could 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 very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits 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 give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood cases 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
