I think there is a possibility that the hens and bunny could be friends...eventually. The hens seem to be venturing farther and farther from the coop. The routine at night is always the same; right before they head in for the night, they come up the flagstone path toward the back door. Although they never go beyond the first step. They peck for a bit at the Russian Sage, and the lilies, then head home. They are funny little creatures.
