Now don't laugh, cmon! Seriously, suppose you had one of those big kinda rabbits that don't have rabbity ears but floppy ones. Those big rabbits like the size of a coon which are harmless (and defenseless) but are big and may give a number of predators second thoughts if they saw it in the poultry yard. Plus they don't bark; yet they do have a presence if they are bigger than a hawk or a possum or weasel--especially if they don't have ears that 'advertise' that they are delicious huge rabbits!!! Now don't laugh, cmon! I don't know nothin about rabbits or how to get a big one that could live outside with the chickens year round, even sleep on the floor of their pen...........i dunno could a big rabbit and chickens live together? and what 's a big rabbit breed that is easy to come by I'd love the thoughts of some bunnie people. I know someone who has a dutch bunnie living with 8 week old chicks. but i think maybe a dutch would be too small. ??????????????
