Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because bunnies are fragile creatures.
But if you know very well 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 raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may 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 beat you off. So before you make the decision in raising bunnies they are some things that you need to know.
– 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 need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are kept for meat production and breeding.
– When it comes to feeding rabbits you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy vegetables like carrots and cabbages. You can 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 and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor rabbits then you must ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Rabbit houses should be made from steel cages or wood hutches because bunnies can 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 good housing, feeding them right and also some little cuddling.
