I was considering putting rabbit run/hutches directly over my raised beds for the winter. has anyone ever done this? seems like a no brainer for amping up next summers soil, or would it be to much and end up burning everything I try to grow?

Rabbit urine is fairly high in nitrogen...  their poop is fairly mild....

I have been looking into rabbits and gardening. The consensus of the many videos is cleaning up under the cages and adding that directly to a planted garden is safe. What you are planning would be optimal as the bulk will have broken down over the winter. I think it is a great idea...JJ
