Being a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy 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 rabbits then its highly recommended that you discover all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you may think aren’t harmful, in reality they can hurt you if you handle them in a way they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing rabbits they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are different sizes of rabbits. They are little rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not good for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are kept for the production of meat and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You may also feed them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you should be sure you to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protective fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
