I haven't sold any of mine yet, but I've been paying $35 for a doe and $25 for a buck to get my breeding stock. I will probably stick to those prices if I decide to sell some. Purebred Californian, (he shows them,) but I don't get the pedigree.

Pellets are $16 (plus tax) for a 50 lb bag.

No sales at this time, as mine are for dog food.

I paid $25 for NZ doe, $20 for Rex Doe, $20 for Rex buck.
My Satins are culls bought for meat, but breeding them to make more meat for us only. $6 each

The Fuzzies (LionHeads) are for pet and show. $75 for 2 does and a buck.

Feed is $18/50 lb
Hay is $6/bale for 60 lb bales of grass mix.
I also feed fodder.

I wish we were closer. I have paid no less than $40 for good quality Rex, and the last doe cost me $85. I sure wish I could get $85 for a Rex.

For Ped Mini Rex - $20
Ped Silver Fox - $25
Ped Flemish Giant - $30

We haven't looked at pet sales yet, just selling at shows if we have a litter available. Our girl scout cookie sales at bunny shows are miles ahead of the bun sales though.

Georgia

Mini Lops (Pets)
$40
Show/Brood Quality
$50+

I've paid good money (Most so far $250) to get high quality stock, but all of them now have come from the west coast. I don't plan to over price them due to that, but when show quality is produced I think a $50-$100 range isn't too bad for pedigreed,quality stock.

Feed ranges from about $17-$18
I'm switching from Manna Pro to Pen Pals cause the quality they have been making lately has a good deal of my rabbits boney. Friend with mini lops 30 minutes away had his stop eating all together! Yikes! I was told pen pals runs for $17 around here.

Washington - Eastern half
Breed: Price (NP=not pedigreed OR P=pedigreed)
Mini Rex NP pets $20-$25 feed store pays $10. P Show $35-$200
Mini Lops NP pet price as with MR. P Show $35-$200 I specialize in tri-colors
Polish.. same as above
French Lops as above too. I just started back with them.
I have NZ, Cals, and crosses of those and SF. I sell very little as breeding, they are not show stock. All of it goes for pet food.

What are the majority of your Sales in order from greatest to smallest
The majority of my sales goes as processed pet food or whole furred feeders. I also buy for that purpose as well. Next would be show stock and that would be the same as breeding stock as if it is not show worthy it's not breeding worthy either. The only exception is in the tri-colors as the harlie marked are not showable but if of comparable quality used or sold as breeding stock.

Price per 50# of feed- $14.25 brought in from the mill. I am going to try fodder feeding at least a part of the herd.

How about adding how many are in your herd? Average 250ish

I kept thinking "wow you guys pay a lot for your feed' since I only pay $10.70 per bag for mine, then I went up on the Heinold website and it's for 40 pound bags not 50, so that's why it was looking so skewed.

good idea, I have about 16 breeders fulltime and approx 4-5 litters going at once, so about 45-60 is average.

Ohio

Pedigree or not-- same price on Rex and AmChin IF I was selling
Rex- no price decided as of yet
Amchin_ I could easily sell at 40-50 dollars, unproven, Show/breeding
Have sold fryer AmChins 10 dollars each, live- no Peds, only sold males.

Culls for dog food have a place to go-- no charge to that person.

The Buckeye brand pellets I feed, 16%- 50 pound- about 15 dollars a bag-I want to get PenPals-- but have no vehicle to do so... Also feed fresh, and hay-- last hay I bought-- Compressed alflalfa from TSC-- 20 dollars for 50 pound bale. Alfalfa Cubes, from feed store- 10 dollars for 50 pound bag

Other feeds-- like the horse sweet feed- run about 10-15 dollars a 50 pound bag. Straight Grains are only a few dollars less per 50 pounds.
