    Yes, my hen Charity was best friends with a rabbit when she was a chick. They ate and slept together. So cute.

    Had a rooster who was friends with a rabbit also. In winter the rooster would sit on the rabbit to keep warm. They were very bonded and grazed in the yard together. The amazing moment came when a stray cat wandered in the yard. It was eyeing up the rooster. That bunny charged the cat. It flipped it to the air. Never saw that cat again.
