    Rabbit manure compost

    They are in a set-up similar to hanging wire cages. I'm thinking of posting about my hutches when I get a new one built. Chickens could definitely get to the rabbit poop but.... we dont have any chickens right now :( I want some laying hens really bad though

    Rabbit manure compost

    Another question- does a composting mixture need to be sheltered or can it be out in the open? I'm worried about it when it rains (or worse, snows...).

    Rabbit manure compost

    My mamaw kept a compost pile for a long time so I figured I would do something like that. She kept old ice cream pails and filled them with scraps to dump on her compost pile.

    Rabbit manure compost

    No, we never have really done compost. I'm still working out the kinks on where to dump everything and how to manage it.

    Rabbit manure compost

    I've done a little research and I know from experience that rabbit manure makes an excellent fertilizer- and can be spread fresh since it's not "hot". We spread it on our little 1/4 acre corn garden this summer and had EXCELLENT results with our crop. Since I raise rabbits and I'm expanding my...

    Dutch rabbit color genetics

    I am working on my Proficiency/SAE for FFA and I'm looking to get Dutch rabbits. I am particularly interested in the tortoise variety, but I'll probably start with another variety since I'm new to Dutch and fairly far away from many breeders. I was planning to get 2 bucks and 2 does so that I...

    Palomino getting scabs, what from?

    Palomino getting scabs, what from?

    Thank you for your input guys. Is there any type of sunscreen that is formulated for horses/animals or would just children’s sunscreen work?

    Palomino getting scabs, what from?

    I own a bald-faced Palomino who is generally very healthy. But during the summer his nose gets scabs on it. This year it didn’t show up until late, like a week or two ago. Is this from sunburn or is there something wrong? And how do I fix it? I can post pictures if I need to

    Butchering: Ideal place to separate the feet?

    I only butcher about half a dozen at a time and my neighbor helps me out since he’s more adept at butchering than me. He taught me to sever the tendons in the joint and then bend the foot backwards to break the bone. Sometimes it takes a bit of work to get the foot completely severed from the...
