    My kids have been bothering me to get a rabbit. I was thinking they could run free in my chicken run as it is pretty well secure, but do rabbits and chickens mix?

    I have what I call a "playpen" outside that is a 6'X6' square. I have 9 little chicks that are 5 weeks old and my daughter has a young rabbit. They ALL play in the playpen together and seem to enjoy each other. The only thing is that the rabbit tries to gorge itself on the chick starter:lol: But so far I've only done it when I've been home and keeping an eye out.
