Becoming a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because bunnies are fragile creatures.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping rabbits then its recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact 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 bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not best for producing meat. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You should 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 grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies 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 bit of cuddling.
