    Hi all, looking for something to keep the grass short in my aviary and thought of a rabbit. I have 3 golden pheasants, they spend a lot of time roosting and not on the ground. Would a rabbit be ok in the aviary if it had it's own hutch too? Any advice would be great.

    I wouldn't think that rabbit droppings or pee would be good for anything but fertilizer.Rabbit urine has a lot of ammonia in it which is bad for anything.
    Are your birds new to the avairy?They will eventually eat all the grass in there themselves.
    In N.H.,Tony.
