I'm planning on just coir and verm for my bulk substrate, but I have a rabbit so it made me curious has anyone added rabbit poo to there substrate? If so would the bucket tek still work to pasteurize or would I need to pasteurize on the stove?

I thought there was another thread that talked about using rabbit poo... Buns, eat a lot of the same stuff that horses and cows do so I would think it should work unless the level of digestion plays some sort of role... Give it a whirl... Your verm/coir mix will produce results but in my experience the fruits are smaller and it is a one flush wonder kinda deal...

years ago kocos had a thread on growing on wild bunny poo. sounded like from what i recall was a success.
i like to pasteurize my subs in an oven but no reason ya could not do water bath in bucket but cooler would be better i would think as the cooler would retain heat better

Because it's considered a "cold" manure, you don't have to let rabbit poop age or compost before you use it. Other manures that come from chickens, sheep, horse, cows, and pigs or "hot" manures, need to be composted before you can safely use them.
You might be on to something...
