Chickens with rabbits?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm sorry if this is in the inappropriate forum.
My boyfriend spontaneously agreed to adopt his cousin's rabbit. We've had rabbits before, but they were kept inside in a rabbit cage. He wants to put the rabbit in the barn with the chickens and ducks.

My question is: has anyone had success cohabitating poultry and rabbits? What have you had to do?

I think my flock would be fine, but I'm not sure!

I don't think the rabbits would bother them at all, and because you've had them in the past you already know to make sure your chickens get to eat too lol.

Lol right! I wanted to have a separate "home" inside our barn, just for the rabbit. A place they can go to relax, eat, or take a nap. My poultry gets to forage during the day, so I could always put the rabbit in it's house when the birds come in for meal time.

That's what I would do
