Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other side its challenging because rabbits are delicate creatures.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy 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.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you might 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 strong and they use them to beat you off. So before you choose the decision in rearing bunnies they are some things that you need to learn.
– There are various sizes of rabbits. They are small rabbits that can be kept in small houses and are not great for producing meat. Then they are the bigger ones that need a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for meat production and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you have to know that they are vegans, so you can’t feed them meat. You must feed them chewy veggies 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 healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa may be given to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to keep outdoor bunnies then you must be sure you to offer protection for them. You should build them shelter and a protective fence. Bunnie houses must be made from metal cages or wood cages because bunnies can eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the simplest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just care for them by giving them good housing, feeding them right and also some bit of cuddling.
