Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging reason being rabbits are fragile animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need 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 give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest 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 bit of cuddling.
