Being a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because rabbits are delicate animals.
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 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 creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in reality they may 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 learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
