Rabbits are great for the garden. Their manure is par none, and they are one more way that I can entice my kids outside. The "chores" of feeding, watering and cleaning the hutch are actually fun, as they take turns holding and petting the rabbits while the chores are performed. Farmburbia can even integrate the manure into the compost servicing and maintenance.
