Rabbit Husbandry

Kaninchen auf Wiese Rabbits have a number of specific needs that you should be aware of in order to keep your animals healthy, lively and comfortable.

Since rabbits and guinea pigs are very social animals that live in groups in the wild, it is absolutely necessary to get two (or even better several) animals. A single animal feels lonely and gets sick.

Even a guinea pig cannot replace social contact with conspecifics! As a rule, female animals from the same litter get along best. Nevertheless, incompatibilities can occur, so the animals must be observed very closely at the beginning. Male animals must be neutered to avoid rank fights on the one hand and to prevent unwanted offspring on the other hand.

Attention: Sexual maturity can occur in small breeds as early as the tenth week of life!
