Ask Poopreport: What To Do With Rabbit's Poo?

m 1+ points - Newb

We have rabbits in our garden, but since they are nice little creature, we have one problem - rabbit dung on the grass.

How can we get rid of the poo in the grass? Is
there an environmentally-friendly product that can bio-degrade the poo? I would like to use an environmentally-friendly product since there are other creature in the same spot as the rabbits.

Your answer is right next to your yard; toss the rabbit poop in the garden. I think Crapola - a Poopreporter from New York - actually has sold rabbit poop to her neighbors because it is supposedly an excellent fertilizer. If it wasn't Crapola who did this, it was someone else.

When we had guinea pigs, we put their poop in our flowers all the time. We'd just toss it into the top soil. Great stuff.

Daphne's been hugging bunnies since 1969, so you know she knows what to do with bunny poop. What about hosing the poop into the grass? It would make the grass grow greener.

My grandfather was a gardener. Actually he was a diesel mechanic, but gardening was how he relaxed. Rabbit cages with sand and straw were moved from spot to spot to enrich the soil. If you were a relative, a neighbor, or even an acquaintance, your freezer would be full of rabbit. As for the soil, the poo worked wonders! Now I'm hungry for fried okra!

The rabbit poo will break down (watering will speed up the breakdown) and enrich your soil. The problem is more rabbit pee which is very acidic. If you feel you have a lot of rabbits, and the grass is discoloring, an occasional sprinkling of lime in the area will sweeten the soil.
I am neither a bunny hugger or a bunny eater, so I pretty much ignore them. If a cow however, decides to wander into my yard.....well that's a different matter.

Have Christopher Robins place the pellets in Pooh's corner.

My pup loves bunnie poo, or bunnie chocolates as we call them. I am sure he would get each and every one in your yard. Only problem, bunnies can carry Guiardia and the darn puppy has been infected with it 3 times now. Hard to clean all of it up out of the yard before he gets it! UGHHH!!
