I have a large cage of 12 rabbits, who spend a good deal of time
pooping. The dirty soil and hay mixture needs to be turned out every
once in a while, and I wondered if this manure/soil/hay mixture could
be used as an enriching compost for my herb garden. Would the pH of
the manure, diluted with potting soil, be suitable for herbs?
I've read that rabbits only digest 25% of the food they eat, the
remaining 75% cycles through their system as unused plant fiber.
That's why rabbits are often seen eating their dried poop - it still
has lots of nourishment. That said, there should not be much
difference between it and plant mulch.
