    I've been thinking of adding a rabbit hutch and a pygmy goat to our little backyard "farm". Our side yard is fenced off, can they all free range in there together? Will they get along okay?

    My chickens go into the goat pasture all the time to free range with no problems. In fact my goats are scared of the chickens some times. We let out rabbits out to free range our entire property during the day and then at night we just put them in their hutches. They hop up to the chickens some times and the chickens don't seem to be bothered by them at all. The rabbits I've never seem really around the goats so not sure. They could possibly get trampled by a goat I suppose but rabbits are pretty fast so I would imagine all would be fine.
