    Strange question and long story short, I temporarily have 19 3 week old Cornish Xs in my large, movable bunny tractor, and the bunny in a small cage for 2 weeks until the chicken tractor becomes available. I don't like that Bunny has to be in a small cage, and am wondering if it would hurt anything for the 2 to be in the same cage? [​IMG]

    Not sure but I read somewhere that the rabbit would attack chickens....................
    Also chickens and rabbits can pass dieseases between each other...........

    I am sure some one with more experience will get on and give you some real advice on this..........

    I've done it for the last seven weeks without any problems.

    Just remember it's better for a rabbit not to chew on treated wood. And they will chew on wood!

    mine are together...one buck rabbit. since we lost our rooster, he thinks he is in charge and tries to do rooster things. so for now he is in a different run, same coop.

    no prob's other than the rabbit thinking he is a rooster, except for the crowing thingy;)
