Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because bunnies are sensitive creatures.
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 discover all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in reality they may 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 raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest 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 cuddling.
