Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because rabbits 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 bunnies then its recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in reality 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 choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not best 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 the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit 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 given to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses should be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest 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.
