Rabbit Poop?

Assalamualaikum wbt

For those who own a bunny must deals with their poops everyday. A single mature rabbit can produce a lot of poops, especially the large breed, e.g. flemish giant, new zealand, checkered giant etc. They eat a lot and of course make a lot of waste. 

The best part of rabbit manure is that it's not as stinky as cat and dog's. Virtually, dry rabbit manure is odorless unless it's wet or soak by the urine. Since rabbit's diet is only on vegetation and don't eat meat, the smelly bacteria that dissolve meat is not there. Instead, rabbit waste is a good source of nutrient and phosphorus, thus they make an excellent fertilizer for plant's growth and flowering. 

To use it as fertilizer, simply take their waste every morning (usually rabbit eat and poop a lot during night) straight to your plants. Not only you make your plants happy but also eliminate the bad odor at the cage. Another use of rabbit manure is to make a compost pile. Making a compost pile will help conserving the environment which benefit yourself, your garden, your environment and most importantly our mother Earth.

So here the instruction to make a compost pile:

1. Dig a hole at the corner of your yard (at least 2 ft)

2. Gather all your organic kitchen scrap (vegetable peel, uneaten rice, old fruit or whatever that you throw after eating your dinner except bones) and add it into the hole.

3. Dump the rabbit's waste inside the same hole.

4. Use the pitchfork to mix the new and old scraps.

5. If it's too dry, water the compost until it's moist and mix it well to ensure all the components are breaking down.

6. You can  add your kitchen scraps and rabbit manure once in a week (by gathering them) if you're too lazy to dump it directly to the hole everyday. Always ensure the compost is moist.

7. You're ready to add the compost into your garden once it has broken in dark, rich mixture.

I don't think my waste is usefull happy bunny... I dont think we should go there either...

That aside, this alone is the only deterrent to having a bunny for me. Theyre so adorable but good god can they poop up a storm~! I mean, if you have the outdoors space for one sure, who cares~! Poops help the plants and such. But indoors? It seems impossible. And sadly I know people who keep em indoors and when they let the bunny loose to excercise, its bunny poop central...

Cool theme - is it one of the standard ones or did you customise it yourself?
