    Hello there!! I am thinking about purchasing a couple rabbits in the not too distant future. I am also planning on having them live in the hen house with the hens... does anyone else do that? I am only doing that because 1. I love critters 2. I don't want to pay for a hutch when i have an almost complete, brand new coop 3. Chickens eat rabbit poop 4. Why not?

    Also... what are medium to large sized rabbit breeds that are gentle, and get along with chickens and children?
    Here is a good article on the subject
