Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult reason being rabbits are sensitive creatures.
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 rearing bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits 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 reality 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 need to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need 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 vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie 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 provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising 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 little bit of cuddling.
