Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because rabbits are sensitive animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its a good idea that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in reality 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 kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may 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 or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cases because bunnies may 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
