Being a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because bunnies are delicate creatures.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its recommended 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.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think are not harmful, in reality 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 kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cases because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
