Becoming a rabbit owner can be fun and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult reason being bunnies are sensitive animals.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a cheerful owner. If you are new to raising bunnies then its recommended that you learn all you can in rearing these creatures. Once you learn about rearing rabbits then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Rabbits are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention plus affection. Although they are cute cuddy creatures that you could think are not 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 raising bunnies they are some things that you may want to know.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are little bunnies that may be kept in small shelters and are not best for meat production. Then they will be 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 have to know that they are vegans, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them bunnie pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthier. A supplementary diet of hay or alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you want to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor bunnies then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a protecting fence. Rabbit houses must be made from steel cages or wood cases because bunnies may eat on the wood.
Rearing bunnies is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just manage them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
