Anyone use rabbit droppings in their gardens? I hear you can put it straight in the hole fresh from the bunny when planting transplants. They say it is the perfect natural fertilizer...I mulched my garlic last year with the stuff, and it seems to have them off to a good start.

I've never used it but hear it is very good! Have a friend up the road who raises rabbits and she gets tons of it and uses it on her plants and they grow very nicely!

That was one of the reasons I wanted to raise rabbits, aside from the cutness factor, and the tasty factor, kinda like the fertilizer factor....keepin it natural all the way around....

This is the only type of bunnies I have in my yard. This little guy has been hanging out in the yard, my dog has been trying to find it but it is too fast.

I see! I had a cottontail in my yard a couple years ago, then when spring hit and all the snow melted the little bugger had eaten all my shrubs and plants. So now I try to get rid of the wild ones....

Yeah they like to eat all my lillies and some other perennials, I even have a fence in my yard and they seem to find every little hole they can to get in.

One of those wild bunnies made a nest right in the middle of one of my garden beds hidden under some low hanging trees but one of my cats found the poor little babies and ate them................I was sad! I tried to rescue one hurt one but it died. Hope she doesn't do that again! It did not make my day :(

We have a ton of rabbits, so far have not seen much damage from them, maybe cause i have so many plants, they just taste and move along.

Our damage happened in the winter when there was a lot of snow on the ground. One year they worked over out young pine trees. Seems nothing is safe from them when the snow coveres the ground. They even ate the bark off my apple trees. Was able to save them but still...

They will eat the bark off young trees and I've had to put screen around the new ones I've just acquired if I don't want to lose them to bunny teeth. Seems my cats do a good job of keeping them away during daylight hours but when the cats away I'm sure the bunnies play!

I was out walking the other day and everywhere I walked and I walked quite aways down different streets I saw loaves of bread. Some were still in the wrapper so I unwrapped them as I walked so the critters could get at them easier.

Ha Ha sissy I might thing that was the case if we had any stores to deliver to up here. I think it was just some kind soul feeding the critters cuz most of the bread was unwrapped. Looked like nice bread too as it was uncut type sourdough or similar. Yum...........no I didn't take a bite,lol!
Wait as I was writing this something just came to mind. There is an old guy down the road aways who gets old bread from bread stores to feed his cows and he just throws it into the back of his old pickup truck. Some could have fell out along the way maybe?
