Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because bunnies are sensitive creatures.
But if you really know 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 rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in reality they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies 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 best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand 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 provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest 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 bit of cuddling.
