You might get two smaller heads, or no head at all, depending on the variety you are growing. It is still early enough to replant and that is what I would suggest. You might try protecting the seedlings from the rabbits with a bit of fencing, or try using dried blood in the area as a deterrent or perhaps use a commercial or homemade repellent based on garlic and/or red pepper.
