Will poultry - chickens - and rabbits co-exists in the same penned area?
I think there was a thread on this recently. Some folks do, I would not.
Rabbits usually can't handle the dust that chickens create. I have found that is causes respiratory issues in most buns.
My rabbits are in the barn with the chickens. But my chickens freerange during the day, and are only in the barn in crappy weather, and at night.
there has been no respiratory (or other) problems. I also don't notice alot of dust.
:cdno!! do not mix rabbits with chickens bird poo can make rabbits sick and die.. I do not even let the rabbits run where the chickens have. It would be awesome of we could but no.. not good for the rabbits..
Quote:I disagree. Even the highly acclaimed Joel Salatin raises HIS rabbits and chickens together.
If you don't want to read the article--just look at the picture.
Ducks and Rabbits yes. Chickens and Rabbits no.
Thanks to all for thier help.
We raise both chickens and rabbits but they are in separate areas of our yard. The chicken range and are ina coop at night. The rabbits stay in the rabbitry and come inside to get free time. i don't think it's good for the rabbits to be around chickens
