the way I am going to set up the screens I wll be inadvertently separating out the feces from the urine. So I was wondering if there is any use (gardening, etc) for cavy feces?
Good morning,

Yes, cavy feces (and the droppings of any herbivorous animal) make excellent garden fertilizer. However, there is one precaution.When it is fresh, it can 'burn' plants. It needs to be dry and aged. I always make a pile of guinea pig and rabbit droppings near the garden, and after it is a couple of months old, I spread it on the garden. You can also compost it.

I hope this answers your question.
