Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy reason being bunnies are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its a good idea 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.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may 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 learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing 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 bit of cuddling.
