Being that we have at least 40 does, 5 bucks and about 150 teeny babies right now, we have lots of poop! So it gave me some inspiration to write about it.
That may seem funny, but to some people rabbit manure is considered "Gold."
Whether you are a hobby farmer, commercial grower, or just have flower beds and/or fruit trees rabbit manure could be your best source of fertilizer.
Rabbit manure is considered a "cold" manure. By this I mean that most manures you have to let compost before you can use them on your plants. Rabbit manure on the other hand can be placed directly on the plant.
Some people make "Bunny Brew" out of it, meaning a tea of sorts. We place a shovel full of rabbit manure in a 5 gallon bucket and fill with water. Sometimes we just let it fill with rain water. We then let it sit and steep, stir it a little bit every so often and then when we want to use some we dip some out of the bucket and use a watering can and water our plants with it.
You can toss it into your compost pile as well. This makes the best home for worms. They absolutely love rabbit manure. There has been proven studies done through Cornell University that have sited that earthworms reproduce faster in rabbit manure and are plumper, healthier and stronger.
Rabbit manure has been nicknamed a natural "steroid" for plants. It contains 3.7% nitrogen, 1.3% phosphorus, 3.5% potassium and contains trace elements of calcium, magnesium, boron, zinc, manganese, sulfur, cooper and cobalt. Making for a highly nutritious fertilizer.
