Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy 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 keeping bunnies then its a good idea that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in fact they can 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 raising bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not great 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 the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits 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.
