Default Hedges with guinea pigs and rabbits in play area

Does anyone let their hedges out to play with either guinea pigs or rabbits? We now have 2 GPs (both boars) in a C&C cage in the same critter room and now have 2 young bunnies (both males will have them neutered when they are old enough) in another room for quarantine.

We have let the GPs and a hedgehog out at the same time and it seems fine. I would think the rabbits would be too though they are quite a bit more "enthusiastic"?

I wouldn't risk letting my rabbits and hedgies out together. I'd be worried the rabbits would kill the hedgies. My rabbits are all crazy and chase my dog around the house so I definitely wouldn't trust them with my hogs lol.

I wouldn't let the hedgehogs out with either rabbits or guinea pigs. Rabbits thump and if they decided to thump on a hedgehog, it could cause serious injuries.

I also wouldn't allow a hedgehog around a guinea pig. Guinea pigs can carry and pass on a few diseases that they don't get themselves.
