It's really difficult to keep rabbits out of the garden! You can try spraying the emerging leaves with the bitter tasting repellents (Ropel or Deer Away) or you can fence your garden bed with chicken wire or hardware cloth. Bury it at least 6 inches and make it 2' tall. You can enclose the entire bed or make cylinders to place over individual groups of your tulip bulbs. Wish I had an easier solution!
