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 discover 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 need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in actual fact 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 may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed 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 may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies 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 little cuddling.
