    Thought I would just ask if anyone out there has rabbits as well as chickens and if so,how do they get on?
    I have a 6 year old rabbit who has lived on his own for around 4 years now.
    I let him out in the garden a few days ago and he paced up and down the front of my silkies run....occasionally stopping to just stare boggle-eyed at my little silky Harriet. Is he eyeing her up for a quick snack or has he been struck by cupid's arrow? Remember he has lived alone for 4 years and may just think a furry chickens bum is as good as a furry lady bunny's bum.[​IMG]

    I don't have rabbits but that was just funny. I know there are people here who do have them so hopefully they can chime in.

    Joking aside I really would like to know if he should be kept away from my ladies...:|

    Not sure how big the rabbit is, but for the hen's sakes, probably the best to keep them apart.

    He is around the same size as my little 3 month old silky....and I have to say she appears to be giving him the fluttery-eye business also....

    Wish I had normal pets.[​IMG]
