Nowadays, there are many farms for raising Angora rabbits, and many families will keep them as pets. So how to raise it? When raising rabbits, we should pay attention to their living environment and breeding problems. Here's a brief introduction.
1、 Rabbit living environment
The hair of rabbits can grow very long, so when they are raised as pet rabbits, relatively large cages should be provided to avoid dirty hair and knotting. Rabbits will spray urine during the breeding period. If conditions permit, they can be sterilized.
Each rabbit needs about 2 square meters of space to live in and this space can also allow rabbits to get full exercise inside. The squirrel cage, large bird cage and cat cage sold on the market can be used.
A special toilet for rabbits can also be placed in the cage. Some rabbits are born with good hygiene habits and excrete in a designated corner (a special square toilet can be placed). Some rabbits need training to develop good hygiene habits. During the estrus period, rabbits will urinate disorderly and fight for territory by spraying urine. Age appropriate sterilization can be improved.
2、 Reproduction of rabbits
About 8 months after birth, the rabbits are sexually mature. When the female rabbits become restless, it is a sign of oestrus. After mating, the male rabbit will make a loud cry and become unconscious. After pregnancy, female rabbits should be separated from male rabbits. Straw or other hay shall be laid in the cage, and the cage shall be enclosed with cloth. Try not to touch it, so that the female rabbit can keep quiet and stable.
The female rabbit can make a nest with her belly hair. From pregnancy to delivery, female rabbits will become very nervous. If they are exposed excessively, female rabbits may bite the owner or kill their own rabbits. Five to six rabbits can be born at one birth. When food or water is insufficient, the female rabbit may eat the rabbits, so the amount provided should be slightly more than usual.
After about 30 days, the rabbits can leave the nest. At this time, the rabbits can leave the female rabbits. Little rabbits should develop a good habit of scientific feeding and excretion from childhood. Six months ago, young rabbits should be fed with regular and quantitative food every day and unlimited supply of dry alfalfa all day, so as to strengthen their physique and prevent them from getting sick when they grow up.
