Want the best for your garden and looking for an organic fertilizer to pamper your plants? If so, you might want to consider using rabbit manure. Rabbit pellets are organic, odorless, and while packed with concentrated nutrients it is not considered “hot”.
Unlike chicken or goat manure, rabbit manure breaks down quickly which means there is little threat of burning the roots of plants. Rabbit manure is rich in potassium, phosphorus, nitrogen and other minerals and micro-nutrients. It also contains beneficial elements like magnesium, zinc, and calcium.
Your plants will benefit from the extra nitrogen which helps them produce strong green growth, the phosphorus is great for withstanding stress, root growth, and more and bigger blossoms. Without potassium plants will not grow. It helps with fruit quality as well as reducing disease.
While it does not need to be composted, rabbit manure is a great addition to your compost pile. It not only improves the life cycle of microorganisms, but your worms will love it. Add your rabbit manure to the compost pile with equal amounts of hay or wood shavings, mix thoroughly and moisten. Cover the pile with a tarp to maintain heat and humidity. Keep adding to your pile with more rabbit manure, grass clippings, and kitchen scraps like fruit, vegetable peels, eggshells and apple cores.
Using rabbit manure is a sure way to supercharge your garden. Whether you use it fresh or composted, there is no fear of harming your plants. It is safe, organic and greatly beneficial for your growing garden.
We bought three rabbits to start with, a male and two females. Our rabbits have a brand new, air-conditioned hutch. Rabbits are usually kept in cages designed to allow the manure to fall through the wire onto the floor or ground. We did not want to do that to a nice building. David is using brand new trays for changing oil to prevent this from happening.
An oil tray is mounted under each of the three trays so it is like a toilet. The manure collects and then it goes through the hole, down one inch PVC pipes, and out of the hutch wall into a bucket with holes in the bottom outside. We would use some water to wash it all down. It was working great until we bought the bunnies some play toys. They have shred them and got clogged up.
The PVC pipes have been temporarily dismantled. For now, we have buckets inside the hutch collecting the waste. We will be getting two inch PVC pipes and try again. I will update the page when we have it all fixed up again.
Since the photos showing water bowls were taken, we now have a water line that goes to each bunny with nipples for them to drink fresh water. David has ordered some mats for their feet that will still allow the rabbit manure to flow through the cage holes.

All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
