We used to raise both, and the idea is to decide how many of everything (eggs, meat, poultry) you need at once, then set up your brooder operation accordingly. We kept the rabbits in elevated pens and let the chickens scratch indoors.
I've always been fascinated by an operation i toured out West years ago - they raised (all at once) fish & turkeys & corn. The corn was planted in strips, turkeys turned loose to eat it and fertilize the strip, then the next strip was ready. The turkeys ate the fish trimmings and the fish ate the turkey trimmings, so there seemed to be very little waste and hauling involved.
