My prices vary according to quality.
All rabbits are sold with a full pedigree.
Pets start at $25.00 while Show quality is a bit more.
Breeders start at $50.00 and price depends on how much
I don't want or do want to sell them. I am NOT cheap,
but I am reasonable! If you sell to cheaply, folks like to
believe that you are selling JUNK! While if you charge
a higher price they believe they are getting a better product!
Just look at the prices of whatever you are buying out in the
"REAL WORLD"! Every day we are all taken to the cleaners,
come home with nearly empty pockets, and we are Proud and excited by it!
I just try to treat all people fairly in whatever I do on a daily basis.
and that's all you can do. No one has ever left after dealing with me
feeling unhappy, nobody is going to get RICH selling rabbits,
so why not just enjoy your time and dealing with them.
When a customer leaves and you both have a smiling face,
it's been a good day!

:yeahthat: Exactly!
I was a bit unsure about our prices for a start, thinking that they where to high- but now I think they are pretty good really. Considering the fact that we actually have NO competition down here for Nethies (unless you count the pet shop ;) ).

Pedigreed Mini Rex:

Show/Brood quality = $40-100 (4-Hers get a big discount; I may even give them a show quality rabbit for free)
Pet = $0-20, depending on various factors

I'd say about 60% of my sales are for show/breeding animals, with the remaining 40% for pets.

50# feed: $18

Meat mutt juniors, $15.
Proven adults $20
Once they start shaping up, the price is going to get a lot higher. Designer mutts I guess. :)

No pet sales unless it's for a personal friend.

meat sold for pet food? $10 for a 5 lb fryer. It's high because I don't like selling much, even at that price. I prefer to put them in my own freezer.

unfleshed, salted or frozen pelts $2-$10 Tanned, $35 each.
I make more selling pelts than meat or live rabbits combined.

I have 5 does and two bucks at this time, I breed each doe 2-3 times a year.

feed? $21 for 50 lbs. hay $3-5/bale

Meat Mutts I don't sell.

Feed - Manna Pro Select Series PRO Formula $16.50 @ 50lbs

Alfalfa hay $13.00 a bale (~50lbs) Only fed to young grow outs & does a week from kindling & as they nurse.

Arkansas

NZ NP
Adult (breeding age) 10.00
Fryer (butcher weight but not adult) 7.00
Weanling (4-6 weeks old) 5.00

Pet or not, do as you will with them.

Feed 14.75/ 50lb.

I sell very few but, that's what I get for the few I do sell. I am picky about who buys my rabbits so, not many get sold. I'd rather eat them than send them off to a home where they will die from lack of care or mistreatment.

Zass, who are your primary buyers for the pelts?

I haven't started breeding yet, but here's going by the current market (Nethies are being snapped up left and right) and what I'll probably try selling mine for (though it will probably fluctuate depending on how many people are buying). Pedigreed Holland Lops in my area for example, are on the market for $200ish :|

BC, Canada

Breed: Price (NP=not pedigreed OR P=pedigreed)
Netherland Dwarf: $120-$150 P
Netherland Dwarf: $30-$70 NP

What are the majority of your Sales in order from greatest to smallest
Pet, Show

Price per 50# of feed- Not sure, will update today when I get back from the co op..
Starting small with the Netherland Dwarfs.

I paid $30 for each of my doe's with pedigree. She didn't charge me extra for the pedigree's. I paid $18 for a bale of timothy hay, around $7.50 per 8lb bag of rabbit food. I have no idea what I will sell kits for when I start breeding. Prices will be completely different in North Dakota than they are in Colorado.
