    Can chickens and rabbits live together in the same coop?

    I've got meat rabbits in the same facility as chickens, though the are seperated and the rabbits are in hanging cages. I would never recommend housing rabbits on completely solid flooring especially with other animals, they're just too prone to parasites. i have seen settups where the chickens...

    crazy turkey questions but don't you want to know too?

    i think that vultures dopn't have head feathers so they don't get covered in blood and other gross stuff associated with carion.
