Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult reason being rabbits are delicate creatures.
But if you know very well 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 rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in reality they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest 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 bit of cuddling.
