Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because rabbits are sensitive creatures.
But if you know very well 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 rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing 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 might think aren’t harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner 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 bunnies they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not great for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood cases because rabbits 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 proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
