stanky urine smell solution?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Noobious » Sat Sep 24, 2016 3:22 pm


New to raising rabbits, and we're in the process of streamlining everything, but does anyone have a solution for disposing of their waste without it reeking up my yard with urine smell?

As of right now, their waste is funneled into a bin in their hutch in the shed, and once a week I dump in into my garden, which is done for the year and desperately needs good fertilizer. But now, whenever I walk past the garden plot I.can smell the pee, and I don't want neighbors to start complaining.

Any suggestions?

The urine smell should be much less once you have a good rain or two. One thing that many people find helpful, both for the smell and as a general tonic for the rabbits, is to give them a bit of apple cider vinegar in their water. REAL ACV, not just apple-flavoured white vinegar. The usual dosage is 2 tablespoons per gallon.

burying helps as well....or putting a layer of straw over it.
