    I have two English Rabbits which have got the run of my garden, recently there has been a magpie which comes into the garden and into the hutch and pinches their food!

    Normally they chase the birds away but they have taken a liking to this one.

    I looked out of the window yesterday and they were just lounging ariund under the table with the magpie right next to them! lol

    Does anyone elses rabbits like birds? or other animals?

    my two let the birds in the garden, we have two pidgeons and a robbin, occasionally a blackbird too. iv never seen the girls chase them off.

    Bodger tho made friends with two cats that wondered into our garden, a ginger one and a grey one, they never came together but i would find one of them sat next to bodger both lying in the sun with just the run bars seperating them, doesnt surprise me tho, he did think he was a dog, used to try to wrestle with my 2 dogs and they are big dogs, one of thems a rottie!! not sure if bodger was brave or stupid. lol

    Just be careful magpies are killers, i have an annoying crow that the buns have tolerated for a while but joey had a set too with it the other day and i had to chase it off, they can easily do alot of damage and peck eyes out.
