    i have 12 baby chicks coming in the mail in september and there coop and run is already built but i was wondering if i could have a rabbit in the run with them. It will have its own hutch and will probably be a mini or holland lop. What do you think? Is this ok? Thanks

    Yes, chickens and rabbits can go together. Its a little messy for the rabbit. Also you will have to wait until the chicks are much bigger. Sometimes rabbits can play really rough. My friend had one rabbit in with about 15 hens, the coop was rather large. They really seem to enjoy each other. I think the rabbit thought he was a chicken!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
