Today I made friends with a woman who breeds rabbits for use as pets. Because I came to take her poo.
What would I want to do with several bins of rabbit poo? Because you can't run a closed loop system (self sustaining) garden without animals to help you fertilize, and rabbit manure is the greatest fertilizer made in this part of the world (next to worm castings, but I'd need a LOT of worms). Plus, it's the only manure that doesn't need to be composted first. And the roll-y pellets don't smell. Here's how rabit manure stacks up against other standard manures:
: 2.4 Phosphorus(P)
Most concentrated of animal manures in fresh form. No composting needed.
Cow manure (dairy)
Often contains weed seeds, should be hot composted.
Often contains weed seeds, should be hot composted if fresh.
Breaks down quickest of all manures, but it will probably burn your plants (and it reeks) so it should definately be composted.
and finally, because I had never heard of Peruvian sea bird manure until today:
Peruvian Seabird Guano
"Legendary fertilizer of the Incas. Use in soil as a long lasting fertilizer, or make into tea (1 tsp pellets to 1 gallon water)."
There's lots to learn about fertilizer here
