Does rabbit poop kill grass?

Urine Burns Grass
Like dog urine, rabbit urine is acidic and will kill grass in spots wherever it occurs. You might be able to train your dog to use out of the way places for its elimination needs, but you can't train wild rabbits, so when they visit your garden, they urinate as well as eat grass and other plants.

Is steer manure better than chicken manure?

A: Poultry manure costs more because it has a higher analysis of primary nutrients. Typically, it has about three times the nitrogen and twice the phosphate of steer manure. However, if you're buying manure primarily as a source of organic matter to improve soil structure, five bags of steer is preferable.

Can I put rabbit poop in my garden?

Rabbit poo is not a hot manure so it can be used strait from the source. If you don't use a lot of bedding (hay is ok) in your pans, you can pretty much take your poo straight to the garden. Sprinkle a little bit of the droppings around your garden and let it slowly release nutrients into the soil.

Why do dogs eat rabbit poop?

It is important to note that eating rabbit droppings does not mean that your dog has a dietary deficiency; it's just a gross habit.

Are rabbits dangerous?

It can be dangerous for bunnies to go outdoors without careful supervision. Companion rabbits who are forced to live outside are at risk of being hurt or killed by predators, even if they're kept in a hutch. Other animals who might want to hurt them aren't the only danger for rabbits when they're outdoors.
