Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because bunnies are fragile 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 a good idea that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
