    Hello
    I have two chickens and one rabbit.They get along fine but i separate them before going to bed by dividing their shed in to two.In the morning when i open them my rabbit tries to eat their seed mix! The food is in a heavy pot, but the rabbit manages to tip it over and eat their seeds.If i get a chicken feeder will the rabbit be able to eat it and if i put feeding pellets in the feeder will the chickens be able to eat it.
    Thanks

    A feeder would probably help.
    I would think you need a diferent diet for your rabbit..
    Do you keep rabbit feed in his area too?

    The rabbit gets fed rabbit foods of one handful a day and is meant to eat hay but clearly he finds their seeds more tastier.I have them in the same shed but separated by halving the shed,their food is far away from each others foods also.

    He probably couldn't flip a feeder.. sounds like that would work
