Becoming a bunny owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging 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 raising rabbits then its recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think aren’t harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner 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 raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to find out.
– There are various sizes of bunnies. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small shelters and are not great for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegans, so you can not 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 and alfalfa may be provided to them as well.
– You should decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you must be sure to offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Bunnie houses must be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Raising rabbits is not the easiest 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 bit of cuddling.
