Being a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its difficult because bunnies are sensitive creatures.
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 rearing these creatures. Once you learn about raising rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead 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 actual fact they may hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are very strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegetarians, so you can not feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
