My baby bunny won't stop pooping!

HELP please! I received a baby bunny as a rescue at the age of approx. 3-4 weeks. I got him through that time and he is now approx. 5-6 weeks old. I have lots of experience with small animals but have never had an issue like this. The issue that I am having is that he poops - A LOT! I am talking about 30-40 pellets in an hour. And most of the time it is on me or my boyfriend. It seems almost as though he comes up on our laps or onto the couch only when he wants to go to the bathroom. I just started litter training him and he is ok in the cage but as soon as he is out, he just goes anywhere and everywhere. He only has a small area to roam right now during potty training but he still refuses to go in his box. Why is he pooping so much and why is he pooping on me?

Bunnies are usually easy to litter train - if it were me - and I have had rabbits as well - I would take your bunny to a vet to rule out a physiological problem.
