Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult because rabbits are fragile creatures.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its highly recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t 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 kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not best 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 meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood hutches 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 cuddling.
