Being a bunny owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its not easy because bunnies are sensitive animals.
But if you really know what you are doing then you will be a cheerful 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 bunnies then you will be prepared for what is in front of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance animals which require a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you might think aren’t harmful, in actual fact they can 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 may want 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 will be the bigger ones that require a lot of space to live in. These are the rabbits that are raised for meat production and mating.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are vegans, 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 grow more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you would like to keep indoor or outdoor rabbits. If you would like to keep outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal 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 bit of cuddling.
