    Hi there,
    I currently have 8, 1 week old chicks (buff orps and silkies) and am looking at getting 2 rabbits. I have heard that rabbits might contract a disease (cocci?) from chickens. Does anyone have any experience keeping rabbits with chickens? We have a 12 x 4ft mobile coop, so both chickens and rabbits will have fresh grass all of the time.

    Please let me know what your experiences have been!
    Thanks!
