Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because bunnies are delicate animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its highly 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 creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not harmful, in actual fact 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 rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like 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 protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood cages because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest 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 bit of cuddling.
