During the summer I could use the mix of bunny pee, bunny pellets and wood pellets as garden mulch (the wood pellets sort of "explode" into wet sawdust with the addition of water), but now that the Wisconsin winter is setting in, I'm wondering about vermicomposting. I have about a dozen hens, and worms would be a lovely addition to their diet.
This would be different than the usual vermiculture in that I could probably fill a box pretty quickly, and I won't be putting food scraps in there because we give those to the chickens. I feel like the mix from the bunny box should be "complete," but as I've never done this before, I'm wondering if any of you know more than I do! This will be indoors, in a three-season room, meaning it stays colder than the rest of the house, but never freezes.
