    Could anyone tell me how many rabbits could be house together in a 4 x 6 rabbit pen?

    I would put no more than three in there, unless you can divide it up somehow. You could divide it into about a four-hole setup, comfortably, six hole if you really want to cram them in there, and don't want to breed.. And don't house males together.

    Size wise, the cage you describe would fit three comfortably. I have not seen three grown males housed together, but if it works for you, I won't knock it.

    I have seen the occasional situation where two intact adult males live harmoniously together, but it is unusual. 3 is really pushing it. I have seen 8-10 week old males that were too aggressive to leave together, though that is unusual, too. Knowing rabbits, I'd think you are really pushing your luck to try to get 3 adult males to live together, especially if one is unfamiliar to the other two.
