Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its not easy because bunnies are sensitive creatures.
But if you really know 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 discover 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 plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not harmful, in reality 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 kick you off. So before you make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed 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 want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits 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 bit of cuddling.
