Rabbit and Duck friends

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have decided to get my pet rabbit out of his cage and let him run with my duck.  The pen in my yard is about 16 ft. by 8 ft. with  a small kiddy pool.

My duck gets a blend of Zupreem parrot pellets and laying chicken feed.  My rabbit gets Hay with Rabbit pellets.

Both feeds are in bowls on the ground for easy access.  I noticed that the duck snags a few bites out of the rabbit food and vice versa.

Will this hurt them? If so what can I do about it? I hate to put the rabbit back in his cage.  He is enjoying running around on the fresh grass.

:welcome Sharing small amounts of feed should not hurt either.  I have had problems with 'free range' rabbits developing diarrhea - Generally in the summer.  Not certain if it was coccidiosis or somehow heat related.
