Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult 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 a good idea 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.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may 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 very strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. 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 bunnies you need to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You should 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 can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
