Becoming a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult because bunnies are delicate animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its a good idea that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about rearing bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require 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 know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest 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.
