Becoming a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because 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 raising rabbits 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.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
