Tips on how to raise a rabbit

Learning how to raise rabbits or other pets while growing up in a family can be a very rewarding experience for children. But if a pet that you choose for your kids? The most common pets are cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and rabbits. All these animals are great choices for different reasons.

I was fortunate to be able to raise rabbits for six years, until about 14 years with my sister. Let me tell you about our experiences. We started with a gray and white, adult, male rabbit and a black, adult, female rabbits from which we left in two separate wooden cages in a large metal shed.

The rabbit cages were covered with straw to the rabbits warm in winter and a comfortable space to sit on business. We eat rabbits, hay, alfalfa, oats, dandelions, grass, carrots, and pellets, and gave a lot of water in containers, hanging on the side of the cage. These items can be purchased at the local supermarket, pet store or at a local farm.

In summer their cages cleaned every two to three days and they sit on the chips. Some of the droppings in our garden as a fertilizer that has really helped our vegetables grow well. The rest of feces was placed in a garbage bag to be picked up on a weekly basis by the dustman.

Because rabbits lived in a shed, the area was very pleasant, and so, after three months or so we began to breed them so we should baby rabbits to sell to other children. Also, we would simply reinvest the money we earned more rabbit supplies.

An item of interest that the average lifespan of a rabbit is 8-10 years, meaning there is quite a commitment to these animals not only from a hygienic point of view but also from an emotional perspective.

For a friendly rabbit to remember to pick it up, hold and pet each day. Our rabbits were very friendly and very comfortable with us and so we were very attached to them. It was really fun, because in a way that they really became part of the family.
