What does hand rearing rabbits mean?
Hand-rearing rabbits refers to the process of raising young rabbits (also known as kits) without their mother's involvement. This may be necessary if the mother rabbit is unable to care for her kits due to illness or death, or if the kits are orphaned for some other reason. Hand-rearing involves providing the young rabbits with appropriate nutrition, warmth, and care to ensure their survival and healthy development. This can include bottle-feeding them with a special formula, providing them with a warm and safe environment, and stimulating their bodies to encourage urination and bowel movements. Hand-rearing rabbits is a time-consuming and delicate process that requires knowledge and experience to do properly. It's important to consult with a veterinarian or experienced rabbit breeder for guidance and support if you find yourself in a situation where you need to hand-rear rabbits.
