Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting 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 recommended that you discover all you can in raising 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 require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not harmful, in actual 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 choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little bunnies that can 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 bunnies that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate 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 rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to 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 can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies 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.
