Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its not easy because bunnies are fragile animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to keeping 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 ahead 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 way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand 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 grow more powerful and healthy. 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 bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies may 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 proper housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
