    My initial want was to have the bunnies lie with the chickens. Since they are borrowing animals i'm wondering if anyone has had any luck with keeping the 2 types of critters together and how did you keep them from going under and out of your pen?

    This is what I said on another thread [​IMG] :

    We do keep our rabbit in her little cage inside the coop, but not running with the chickens.

    That rabbit's father who we no longer own used to be housed in a dog pen with a blind rooster and a duck. He got along pretty well. The rooster tolerated him -- the rabbit would use him as a practice mating target -- and the duck disliked him but never did anything about it.
    We kept him running in there in the daytime, and at night we locked him up in his small wire cage inside the pen.
