Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because bunnies are fragile creatures.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its a good idea 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.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in 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 beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them rabbit 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 provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from steel cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
