Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its challenging because bunnies are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its a good idea that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– 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 give 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 bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cases because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
