Two of my girls have some white poop in their tray. I know it's not good. I read about it somewhere and about what causes it but I forget. Can someone refresh my memory and help me get rid of this problem? Thanks.

Do you have a photo? A white coating can simply be mineral deposits.

Maybe dried urine--the calcium content can make it turn white.

How can I lower the calcium content? I know Lavender helps but I dont have enough of it.

What have they been eating in the way of chew toys? Sometimes a bunny's poop can take on the color of whatever cardboard boxes they've been eating, for example. Gus ate white card once and his poop came out whitish.

They don't have toys. I've tried giving them toys but they usually binky all over the place during their free time.

It is normal excretion of calcium in the urine; no worry
