Being a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its not easy because rabbits are delicate creatures.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful 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 raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in actual fact they can 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 rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not good for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to raise outdoor rabbits then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
