Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because rabbits are sensitive creatures.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its highly recommended that you discover all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think are not 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 make the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised 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 not 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 germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases 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 care for them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
