I was just reading some posts about rabbits ranging freely in the yard, and am wondering how feasible that is for my 3 New Zealand whites. They live outside now but in cages without a floor. They make a burrow there and I feed them every day. They are pets but about 85% tame. I live on a 40-acre farm, but not too far from civilization. I just assumed that if I let them loose, they would either be eaten by hawks and cats (since they're so visible with white fur) or they would immediately run off. Does anyone have experience with this? The problem is, I'd rather let them go free than send them to the butcher, which is where they'd go in a few weeks anyways. I can't bring myself to have them butchered, but I can't keep them either, and I haven't found pet homes for them. There are 2 males and 1 female and the 2 males fought like crazy before once or twice when they were in the same pen, so I think one would probably chase the other one away from the farm for that reason, no? Any feedback is appreciated.
