Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because rabbits are fragile animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its highly recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in actual fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing 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 bit of cuddling.
