Cuckoo for Cocoa Poos ?
This weekend, I started some research on rabbit poo that is for sale on the web. See The Wonderful World of Bunny Poo yesterday for how this investigative trail got started.
I had put a potential name of Cheeripoos below the picture of our bunny poo since the bunnies eat so much oat hay. However, Blaine thought that Cocoa Poos for the deep chocolate coloring might be more descriptive. Here we are already disagreeing about the name for a hypothetical product.
Someone commented yesterday that they thought that bunny poo might be available for sale on Ebay. So I had to look. Yes, you can find rabbit manure for sale on Etsy, Ebay and Amazon. Ebay had the most sellers, so the best ability to comparison shop is there.
I found three sellers of bunny poo on Ebay. The first seller advertises 6 lb. Rabbit Manure!!~~Best Organic Fertilizer There Is! The Buy It Now price is $6.99 with an $11.00 shipping cost. The picture shows the rabbit producers with their food bowl which I think is a nice touch. There is an excellent description with lots of benefits and reasons for using bunny poo. I like the added touch of using a green color for the text. It gives it a nice eco conscious feel. This seller says, “YOU’LL NEVER GO BACK TO MIRACLE GRO!!!” which is a strong closing. They have this listed with more than 10 available which is a scary quantity of rabbit poo sitting out there somewhere waiting to be bought.
The second seller on Ebay has two rabbit poo products for sale. They have 6 lb or 10 lb Rabbit Manure, Organic Fertilizer. Both sizes are Free Shipping. The 6 lb size is $16.95, while 10 lbs is $21.95. Awww, I open up the listing and see they have a description with a cute cartoon that includes a rabbit and a worm poking its head up out of the ground (one assumes fertilized with bunny poo!). There is a picture of the rabbit poo which looks disturbingly like pebbles on the beach in beige, gray and sandy colors rather than the deep colors I am used to seeing with our bunnies. So now I am concerned about the health of their rabbits. They call their product “Bunny Berries”. They say they make every effort to ship the manure “dry”. Eeeuwww, TMI. The background throughout is green providing a professional look to the listing with an eco feel.
Unlike the first seller, this seller has filled out the Ebay Item specifics. They give the condition as New. I guess a real debate could start as to whether manure / compost / fertilizer is new or used. I think I have to disagree with the “in its original packaging” part of the new statement. Wouldn’t that be still inside the rabbit? Anyway they list the application as “All Purpose” and I decidedly would not go that far. This seller also has more than 10 available on both the 6 lb and 10 lb listings. So this seller has an unreal amount of rabbit poo sitting around somewhere.
Which brings us to the final Ebay seller who has Rabbit Manure for a natural fertilizer. They too have filled out the item specifics with the bunny poo listed as New? However they have the application listed as being for plants, much better. They estimate weight at roughly 14 lbs. The Buy It Now price is $5 with $14.95 in shipping cost, however there is a Make an Offer option. You can haggle price on this one! However, they have less poo available, only 4 currently. This listing is straight black and white, so no eco conscious vibe. They have a nice description which almost makes it sound cute: “Rabbit manure is very unique, as it is solid, and comes in small round droppings a little larger than a b.b. pellet. They are almost like a time release capsule, and perfect for your garden.”
Wow, this is a whole lot more bunny poo for sale than I expected to find online! I am now running way late and pooped out.
