Rabbits produce two types of fecal pellets - the 'regular' ones that fall 
through the wire mesh of the cages(or that you find in your lawn/garden), 
and  moister 'night pellets', which are 'recycled'.  Rabbits are 
hindgut(large intestine) fermenters, and these specialized 'night pellets' 
contain large amounts of B-vitamins, produced by the bacterial/protozoal 
microflora of the cecum and colon.   Those little ol' 'smart pills'?
