Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because rabbits are delicate animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its recommended that you discover 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 animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in actual 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 choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can 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 reside. These are the rabbits that are raised for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits 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 hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing 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 bit of cuddling.
