Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging 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 recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not 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 make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses 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 rabbits that are raised for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may 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 can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest 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.
