a. Night eating habits:
Rabbits have the characteristics of day rest and night movement. Listless during the day, close your eyes and rest, and eat very little; Energetic at night, food and water intake increased, accounting for more than 70% of the whole day. Therefore, feed enough forage and drink enough water in the evening. Conditional breeders can feed it once at night.
b. Narcolepsy:
Rabbits often close their eyes and rest during the day, in a state of quiet or sleep. At this time, in addition to hearing, other stimuli are not easy to cause excitement. According to this habit, in addition to ensuring normal feeding, drinking water and daily management, the breeder should keep the rabbit house and the surrounding environment quiet, and try not to interfere with the rabbit's sleep during the day.
c. Timidity:
Rabbits are timid animals. In case of enemies, they can make judgments with the help of keen hearing. Sudden noise, strangers or strange animals, such as cats and dogs, will frighten rabbits and affect surrounding rabbits. Therefore, in the feeding and management, the action should be as light and stable as possible to prevent strangers or other animals from entering the rabbit house.
d. Cleanliness:
Rabbits like a clean and dry living environment. The damp and dirty environment is easy to cause the spread of parasites of infectious diseases in rabbits. Therefore, in the rabbit house design and daily management, it is necessary to ensure that the enclosure is clean and dry, warm in winter and cool in summer, and well ventilated.
e. Solitude:
Although there are groups of rabbits, they are very poor. In group rearing, adult rabbits of male, female and same sex often fight with each other, especially male rabbits. We should pay more attention to new purchases. Therefore, adult rabbits should be raised in a single cage.
f. Bitability:
The first pair of incisors of rabbits are permanent teeth. They exist at birth, never change, and continue to grow. Rabbits must eat and bite hard objects and wear constantly in order to maintain the normal occlusion of their upper and lower incisors. Therefore, in raising rabbits, we should pay attention to the construction of cages and try to use materials that rabbits do not like to bite, so as to prolong the service life of rabbit cages. In addition, we should often provide rabbits with molar conditions, such as processing compound feed into hard pellet feed, or putting more branches or sticks in the cage for rabbits to bite, so as to facilitate the abrasion of incisors and promote the chewing and digestion of feed.
g. Burrowing:
Burrowing refers to the instinctive behavior of rabbits to burrow and give birth in the cave. This habit cannot be used for modern rabbit production. However, in the case of captive breeding, it is necessary to build a litter box or nest for the breeding female rabbit to give birth in the box (nest). However, when building a rabbit house, we must consider the burrowing nature of rabbits. Due to improper material selection or unreasonable design, rabbits make holes in the house, which brings difficulties to feeding and management.
h. Fecal eating:
Fecal feeding of rabbits refers to the instinctive behavior of rabbits to eat part of their own feces. This is a normal physiological phenomenon and is beneficial to rabbits. Usually, rabbits excrete two kinds of feces, one is granular hard feces, which is excreted during the day. One is a mass of soft feces, which is discharged at night. The soft feces discharged by the rabbit will naturally bow down and eat from the anus with his mouth. After a little chewing, he will swallow. All the soft feces discharged every day will be eaten by himself. He will stop eating feces only when the rabbit is ill. Therefore, in terms of management, we should pay attention to observe whether there is soft feces in the house. If soft feces are found, we should carry out health examination on rabbits in time to achieve early treatment and reduce losses.
