What can you do with your rabbit’s poop?
Before we discuss what you can do with all those poop pellets you collected from your rabbit’s litter box, we must first discuss what makes it great in the first place:
What makes rabbit poop great?
In order to understand just how good rabbit poop is, we must first discuss its composition and compare it to other animal manures.
Here’s the basic comparison of nutrients in animal manure:
As you can see from the table above, rabbit poop has large amounts of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus compared to cattle.
Although poultry won on the amount of nutrients it contains, we have to remember that poultry and cattle manure are “hot manures,” while rabbit manure is considered “cold manure.”
“Hot manure” means that the manure cannot be directly added to the soil because it contains so much nitrogen that it will “burn” the roots of the plant.
You have to compost hot manures first or let them age before using them.
“Cold manure,” on the other hand, releases the nutrients contained within them slowly, and it doesn’t “burn” the plant even if you add it directly to the soil.
Additionally, because cold manure releases nutrients slowly, it extends the time it takes for the nutrients to be depleted, reducing the amount of fertilizer needed.
Finally, rabbit poop also contains trace elements like calcium, magnesium, boron, zinc, manganese, sulfur, copper, and cobalt that are beneficial to your plants.
Now that we know just how great rabbit poop is, it’s time to discuss what you can do with it:
Selling rabbit poop.
Because rabbit poop is a great fertilizer, there’s actually a good demand for it amongst garden enthusiasts. It’s actually considered a premium fertilizer and can be sold for $8–25 per pound, depending on where you buy it.
There are a couple of ways you can sell your rabbit poop. The first method is to sell it directly to rabbit poop sellers so that you won’t have to worry about packaging and other business stuff.
The downside to this method is that you would likely need to sell it cheap because the seller would need to do all the work.
You can find bulk rabbit poop buyers from several sources, like the Facebook marketplace, eBay, Craigslist, or your local garden store.
The second method involves doing all the work yourself. It’s actually not that hard to sell your rabbit’s poop, depending on how you want to sell it.
Some people would just bring a bucket of rabbit poop to their local farmers’ market and sell it there.
You could also list it on online marketplaces like the Facebook marketplace, eBay, Etsy, or Craigslist. But in order to do this, you must first dry the rabbit poop a little (if it’s too wet), clean it up a bit, and package it yourself.

Rabbit poop for your garden.
Another thing you can do with all that rabbit poop you collected is to use it yourself. Rabbit poop is a premium fertilizer.
They are packed with so many nutrients and are considered “cold manure,” meaning you can directly use them in your garden. You can just spread them out in your garden.
Additionally, rabbit poop contains a ton of nitrogen, which makes it a great addition to your compost pile if you have one.
