Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult because rabbits are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to raising rabbits then its highly recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures 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 strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them bunnie 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 provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood cages 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
