Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its not easy because rabbits are fragile animals.
But if you really know 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 rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in 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 make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. 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 need a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know 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 feed them bunnie 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 given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
