Rabbits small, quiet, relatively non-smelly, require little care, and are herbivorous – all of these traits make them appropriate for an urban setting. We are experimenting with the colonial method, in which rabbits are allowed free access to each other in a large pen, more closely simulating a natural rabbit colony. So far, it has been working out well. In our attempt to reduce our dependence on commercial feed, we have been supplementing their diets with waste greens collected by the Community Compost Initiative. An added bonus, rabbit manure is exceptionally high in nitrogen and unlike other manures can be applied directly to gardens.
They also happen to be super cute (and so are the kids!):
