Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because bunnies are fragile animals.
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 rearing bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they can 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 little rabbits that may be kept in small houses and are not great 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 rabbits you have to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed 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 should decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from metal cages or wood hutches because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest 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 cuddling.
