At present, there are obvious changes in the output of long hair rabbit breeding, and the price of rabbit hair and the demand for rabbit hair are also growing. Long hair rabbits are listed as breeding poverty alleviation projects by the state in many places. Now, let's talk about what should be paid attention to in the process of raising rabbits.
1、 Give it a quiet environment.
When is the sleep period? It is from birth to 12 days, which can be called the sleep period. Its eyes are closed, even its ears are closed, its ear holes are sealed, and it only sucks, except for the milk, which is the water. Therefore, it should be given a quiet sleeping environment, and it should not be disturbed at will. In addition to doing a good job in the environment, we also need to check whether there are mice. Mice can easily kill or bite them and wake them up. Each nest box can be assigned a serial number. At night, people will be sent to protect it in a centralized way. During the day, it will be sent back to its original cage and fed regularly.
2、 Do a good job in cold prevention measures.
The newly born rabbit is hairless and red all over. It began to grow in about five days, and it was very sparse. In winter, thermal insulation measures must be taken for them, and thermal insulation lamps can be installed. If you are unlucky enough to encounter frostbite, you should put the cold rabbit under an infrared lamp or an ordinary lamp for heating, lay a hot water bag under the nest box, and pad it with grass or rabbit hair** After that, put it on the top to keep warm and see if it can be saved.
3、 You should be fed enough milk in the morning.
Any mammal has the habit of suckling at birth. In particular, it is necessary to eat enough colostrum. Only after eating enough colostrum can young rabbits have antibodies and resist diseases. Young rabbits that do not eat enough colostrum are very likely to die. This is a step that needs to be implemented. How to judge whether it is full?
The satiated baby rabbit has a round stomach, ruddy skin and bright fur, and sleeps quietly and steadily. The baby rabbit who can't eat enough is very upset. Its stomach is flat and its skin is pale. When you touch it, it barks badly. However, some female rabbits who give birth for the first time may not lactate. If they do not lactate within four or five hours after giving birth, they need to be forced to do so manually. After a few days of training, the female rabbit will know how to feed automatically.
4、 Allocate foster rabbits.
Each female rabbit produces different baby rabbits, with more or less. There are more than ten, and there are only one or two. Generally, female rabbits with normal lactation can feed five or six young rabbits, so the staff should reasonably distribute the young rabbits. However, it should be noted that the birth date of the foster baby rabbit and the original baby rabbit cannot exceed two days, otherwise they will not get food.
Therefore, the staff can first distribute the baby rabbits in advance according to their body shape and physique. Before foster care, they can smear a little milk and urine of the mother rabbit on the baby rabbits in advance, so that the mother rabbits can accept them. After foster care, we should carefully observe whether the nest is harmonious.
5、 Prescribe food supplements in advance.
Baby rabbits eat more and grow faster. The bigger they grow, the more they eat. However, the mother rabbit's breast milk is generally less secreted, and it is easy to have insufficient food. So when the baby rabbit grows to 18 days, it can be fed. It is generally fed with tender grass and wild vegetables that are easy to digest.
In addition, the daily management of long haired rabbits is actually very simple, that is, to clean up the hygiene of the farms and rabbit houses in time every day, and to clean up the food residues in time after each feeding. Every five to seven days, the farms, rabbit cages, drinking water tanks and eating tanks need to be disinfected to prevent bacterial infection. For more information, please visit our website Consult!
