I'm generally not a fan of that chicken wire. Perhaps less of an issue with rabbits, but with chickens you can still have predators like a raccoon reach through the wire and rip heads off. Also, the gage on that chicken wire is pretty small, so a determined rabbit could chew through it and make an escape path. For my son's rabbit tractors I used 1"x2" welded wire fencing. Doesn't improve the raccoon issue, but it is a lot more sturdy against rabbits themselves.

But Jordan has an excellent point... its not just movement space but also forage. So there is also a question here about how often you want to move the tractor - and that depends on the quality of your pasture.
