Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because bunnies are fragile animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful 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 way 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 rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to find out.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that can be kept in small houses and are not good for meat production. Then they will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you need to know that they are non-meat eaters, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may 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 may be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you need to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from stainlesss steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits may eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
