But if you really know 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 ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in actual fact they can 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 raising rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want 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 metal cages or wood hutches because rabbits 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 bit of cuddling.
