    You can raise worms in the rabbit droppings. Use the worms as a supplemental protein for the chickens ... or go fishing!

    It really depends on the breed you get. I have Silver Fox Rabbits and the does require a cage that is at least 30"x36". Smaller breeds require less space. I compost all the droppings along with the chicken droppings.
