Thanks, I think he's quite lovely too! He's a Flemy, just a year old...he's got a little more growing to do... I have him and a Mini Rex, they both use the sawdust pellets in their litter boxes- I find it's the best for seperating droppings from urine-soaked bedding. The worms LOVE the droppings. I just use a kitty litter scoop to seperate the droppings, as the sawdust pellets break apart as soon as they have a little moisture in them.- so it sifts out nicely. If there are a few pellets mixed in with the droppings it doesn't seem to bug the worms either.
I've also seen some nice corner litter trays that have like a screen or something on top? So the urine goes thru (to the litter below- I'm guessing?) and the droppings stay on top and can be lifted out.
I think litter with urine in it would need some serious pre-composting to get rid of the smell etc... if it were to be added to the bin.
I know a few people who are using bunny poop, everyone seems to be having great results :)
I'm not sure how soon I will bei nteh columbus area but I will talk to my firend that lives there about getting together so I can visit with her and pick up some worms! Bunnies are so cute! Next year we will be starting a small farm here on our land... I'm prepping now for the raised garden and we're putting materials away fencing the yard for goats and chickens :D I lovel iving in the country!
Hey Amy, did you give the bunny poop a try yet?
I'm about to harvest my first bin that was solely for processing the buns... I'm just finding there's quite a bit of hair mixed in with it!
That was totally a surprise!
Hi Amy! I just joined vermicomposter.com. I really like your worm bag and will be making one for a nature center. I hope to make a new and more interactive worm composter for visiting kids and this one is perfect. I do have one question. Do you ever have to wash the bag? Is it necessary?
Hi Amy, I saw your digestive table and intraterrestial soundings on your site. I like your art. I'd like to say thanks again for sharing designs of worm bin bag, I've spent about 15 euros for materials.
As you've told me on instructables my worms are very big; unfortunately I bought them from a bait shop without being sure if they are EFs and paying much more than what you pay for vermicomposting worms. Obviously the bigger ones between all worms are chosen to attract fish, I hope that they attract each other, too, and will lay eggs soon.
I'd like to shift over to your bag system...currently using rubbermaid stacked bins, and separating the worms is a real pain. But when you open the bottom, it doesn't just all dump out? You have some control?
Hi Amy! So glad you joined the Ohio Vermiculture Network group; love your art! Also love listening to the worms! I'm down in Athens County, about 20 miles from Athens/OU. Give me a holler if you're ever down in this neck of the woods and want to come visit. Kathy
