I am interested combining in a free range setup both rabbits and midget turkeys together in rotating paddocks, the turkeys might patrol for ticks and moving everybody would help to stay ahead of other parasitic life cycles. There would have to be deeply dug obstructions around the paddocks to keep the rabbits from escaping or predators from digging their way in. I also envision all sorts of berry and nut-bearing trees in the mix to provide fallen fruit and seeds for the turkeys but then would rabbit tunneling kill the root systems? Hawks concern me , perhaps using alot of branches stacked over the birds and bunnies as a sort of free-form protection might provide obstructive cover, and additionally provide dappled shade for everybody. Its a rough idea to be sure. I can see design features working to cross purposes in several areas here.
The only problem I see with your thoughts is breeding control. You know how them rabbits are! You probably don't want unsupervised breeding so maybe separate the bucks from the does and eat most of the bucks. Keep the biggest bucks for breeding and bring the does to them.
A brush pile or two inside each paddock would definitely give rabbits someplace to go during air raids.
Your midget turkeys might be targets, depending on how big they get. I had never heard of a midget turkey until this morning. Since they both have different nutritional needs, there would be very little interaction between them. Should work good.
Can midget turkeys fly?
