I have 5 Angora rabbits I recently moved into the barn. They were supposed to be "house" rabbits but then we realized what a bad idea that was... Anyway, I was thinking of cutting into the barn and make a chute that drops their litter into a pile. We use wood pellets as bedding. While I initially thought this was a good idea, I realized that this may draw rodents (uneaten food) and flies. My plan was to leave it and open pile but have some wood against the barn so that the barn siding doesn't decay. Now I'm thinking all or a combination of the following... 1) I need to move it further away or maintain it regularly 2) I could dig a hole and build a box around it 3) I should add fencing material to keep rodents out (but that won't be full proof either) 4) Have something like tar paper between the box and the barn for further protection 5) sloping the back so that water and waste slide away from the barn leaving a small air gap Anyone see any other problems with this? Is it just a bad idea?
