all of these are growing what seems to be out of a tree which is next to my rabbit cage which has a bunch of wet rabbit crap and hay under it. also whenever i touch the ones that i bagged this dark blue/black stuff gets all over my hands. im wondering if this is the spores??
on the large ones the caps are about 2" in diameter and the smaller ones are about 1" the stems are about 5" on the bigger ones and 3"-4" on the smaller the stems are white and appear to be hollow
im thinking its Panaeolus subbalteatus what do u guys think?

I think you'll have to read and hunt a lot before you can even make an educated guess. What you find are actually a species of coprinus, possibly the extremely common coprinus micaceus.
Oh and by the way, the pic that says 'spores' is actually a pic of the gills. The color of the sporeprint can not be concluded from this.
Again, I suggest you go and read some books on mushroom species and identification. To practice your id-ing skills, go out and hunt and practise by trying to id the species you find. The fact that you cannot guess the genus of this species suggests that you've done little or no reading up to this point. Mushrooms turning into black goo should instantly trigger the coprinus-bell in a mushroom hunter's head.
