Wouldn’t a rabbit chew things in the chicken coop? Like even the coop itself? I’ve looked into doing this before, and it always seemed like people had bad experiences with it, so I scrapped the idea. It would be nice if it could work though.

They also talked about the holes that a rabbit would dig all over. Well my chickens make plenty of craters themselves, but I guess rabbit holes are worse.

I can see this happening. You might have to, depending on the size of your run, wrap the bottom of the run in wire, so nothing can dig under to through it. That is what wee do, it is great to protect the birds as well! For chewing, maybe you can just spray pick-no-more on the coop and that won't happen! Just need to give the rabbit some real things to chew on!
