no problem!Thank you very much for all of the great info!!
So it looks like for my purposes... grubs, meal worms and earth worms is what I should be concentrating on?
Did you notice much of an odor with the meat bucket on a pole trick?
My next step in my little homestead is aquaponics so if you have any sources for good beginner info, please pass it on.
yes, i did this...it worked pretty well...the rabbit manure is great compost as well. Even if i didn't eat rabbit meat, i would still have some for manure and selling the babies. Around here i always sell them fairly quick.My opinion: If I save grass clipping successfully this year, I will raise rabbits along with chickens. Why?
1. When process rabbit, scrap meat will be for chickens, and their meat are extremely high in protein (more than 90%).
2. It is free to feed them all year.
3. Chicken will scratch over rabbit manure.
lol, yes you can't eat a pet!That sounds like a great idea.
I gave my son a rabbit for Christmas a few years ago, before this venture.
Because of that, rabbit is forbidden from our table.
I have an area in the corner of the chicken yard that gets a lot of shade that I have tended to dump leaves/clipping. They spend a lot of time foraging there no doubt filling up on bugs/worms.
