Being a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging reason being rabbits are sensitive animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its a good idea that you learn all you can in raising 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 and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in reality they may 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 choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that need a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to keep outdoor rabbits then you must 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 cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest 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 cuddling.
