Wire area where the bunnies eat allowing their droppings to fall into redworm bin
Finally completed the vermicomposting system working under the rabbit hutch. The guys built a funnel underneath the wire section of the floor where the bunnies eating area is (The rest of the hutch flooring is wood. We didn’t want the bunnies hopping about on wire… ouch!) The bunnies’ pellets fall down the funnel which is connected to a Rubbermaid filled with red worms. Pretty nifty, eh?
We didn’t want an open worm bin at the bottom because we wanted to keep the fly population from hanging around. It’s working out really well — no mess, no smell, no daily cleaning, no flies, and great fertilizer for the garden… what more could you ask!

DID YOU KNOW? On average, worms will eat half their weight in food per day? So with one lb of worms you would be feeding 3.5 lbs of food per week. An average household of 4 produces 7 lbs of compostable worm food per week.
Weather Report: Cool and overcast… but we need MORE RAIN!!!!
