Where can I get Rabbit 'waste'?

Posted: 26/10/2015 at 19:34

Apparently my grandfather would stand on the pavement and 'guard' horse droppings deposited in the road by tradesmen's horses - when Ma arrived home from school it was her job to shovel it up into the bucket for Grandfather's rosebed.

Rabbit, guinea pig and goat droppings are particularly high in nitrogen and very good for making compost

I've have Star Child and yellow Honka too

Pdoc, I'm absolutely amazed that you didn't tell him that it was 'next door' that's for sale - well done !!!

Hosta - so very pleased for your friend and his daughter - may their rekindled relationship go from strength to strength

Clari ((hugs))  thank your lucky stars it's not leaking in your house, and keep smiling - there is light at the end of the tunnel

My colleague used to keep a specialist type of cavie called Skinny pigs - they're hairless and have to live indoors with their owners

Guinea pig poo is absolutely the best for adding to compost heaps.  When I worked a colleague kept show cavies - every week she would bring me a bin bag half full of the contents of their runs - my compost was brilliant and was 'made' very quickly.

What do you use it for?

Streetlife?  All sorts of things - local clubs and societies use it as a notice board.  It has a Lost & Found section, ours has rehomed dogs, cats and an engagement ring recently.  We advertised a bike in need of lots of refurbishment and a grandfather came and took it home to do it up for his grandson.  It's also a way of finding recommended local tradesmen.  The council advertise planning applications in our area and the community police use it to let us know what they're up to in the area.

It's a national website, but divided into small areas, like villages or small areas of postcode.  Absolutely brilliant.

Try your local  - it's a community website which facilitates people passing on things they don't need etc.
