Ohio

Cali's & New Zealand $20-50

Babies- $5-15

This is what I've paid as we haven't sold any. Pedigree isn't anything I've messed with. I just want meat and eventually nice furs.

NC rabbit were are you located in NC? I live in here in NC also. I've seen cali's and new zealands range in price anywhere from 20 to 40 dollars for a single rabbit. I'll be selling my New Zealands for 20 dollars a piece. I've also seen mini rexes and lionheads with an astronomical price tag, over 100 dollars or more. my mini rex mixed rabbits will be selling for 15 dollars. My feed costs me 17 dollars from tractor supply.

II Arrows, I live in the mountains of Western NC. A Fla transplant of 13 years. I'm only in my 4th month of this so learning every day. Met someone yesterday who raises NZ, quail, turkey, geese etc. trying to hookup to get a couple of NZ in trade for a couple of Cali's. He didn't seem too interested.

Pricing Update:

Due to rising costs in feed having to go even further to get some that is worth feeding; I've raised all prices by $10.00 on my original post. I have sold a handful of cheaper rabbits since then at a Tractor Supply Swap last fall (regretfully so as well as I ended up having customers that thought I should be responsible for poor housing resulting in tooth issues 3 months after ownership even though they checked them before they left my possession).

So I will not be attending any such functions unless rabbits are pre-sold nor even reducing prices at all for any reason no matter how nice the rabbit is and how much I'd rather see in a pet/FFA/4H/show home because of that occurrence. Every thing has been going to freezer camp if not sold within 4 weeks of posting unless I'm still using for breeding or makes at least the junior brood prospective cut. None of my Mini Rex, Rex, Lionhead litters have made brood/show prospective cuts and I am still with no Holland Lop litters....although I have been telling the girls they are next on the list for the stew pot if they don't produce. Still hopeful that they will pay for themselves this year even though I have a move coming (fall if I'm lucky) and need to do major cage repair/replacements.
Rabbitry is changing in 2016.

NC rabbit my wife and I have been wanting to visit the western part of North Carolina for quite some time now, and my daughter is very interested in a college out that way. We live in Eastern North Carolina and I'm originally from the mountains of upstate New York. If we lived a bit closer I would definitely trade some new zealands for a few cali's, maybe one day we could. I'm still a rookie at raising and breeding rabbits but everyone here has been so helpful and I've learned so much here on RT.

Hamilton, New Zealand. I sell my mini lops for $100-200 NZD ($70-$140 USD). Food costs $30 NZD ($20 USD) for 25kg. Though pedigree, I sell them for pets as that's the biggest market. Thinking of raising my price as my last litter sold within 24hr of my ad being listed.

Ohio

I know I am a little late on this subject.

I only have Cali, I only sell for pets or meat breeders.

I have been getting 15 dollars a piece.

Was paying 17.00 or 50 lb. Found a better deal now paying 9.50 per 50 lb. Just bought a bale of orchard timothy hay for 5.00. :bunnyhop:

Wow im in matamata nz sell my mini lops for $30 and pay $25 for a 10kg pallet bag.
Have never had to advertise yet to sellmy babies as pets as breed litters when i have enough interest. Where do you list your pets? $100 is a great price to get.
