Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its not easy because bunnies are fragile animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its a good idea that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– 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 give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
