Arg, that was the ex's job <g> and a long time ago. <g> I think he did
the complete under the cage thing about every 6 weeks to 3 months and the
sheetrock had become a crumbly mess with the pellets.
Now, the thing is he had it doing triple duty. We had the rabbit cages
handing in a barn on two walls. He put sheetrock up behind the cages to
keep the urine off the walls. Then he had the "chute" piece that came away
from the wall at an angle toward the front so that everything kinda slid
down. On the ground where everything slid to, he had more sheetrock. So,
the sheetrock started on the wall behind the cages and then moved to being
the chute and when it become more beat up (began to fall apart), it became
the stuff on the ground. I'm guessing that all told the sheetrock lasted
between 6 and 9 months.
However, by the time it went into the compost, it had really fallen apart
and crumbled into little pieces and the paper had more or less
