I don't sell the Rex, SF or Angoras as pets, and it says so on my website, but I have had a strange amount of people asking for pets anyway, so I think I'm going to raise the price of all three to reflect the show price this stock deserves.

North East Florida

I have Giant Flemish NP. I don't have babies yet but when I do I will let them go for probably $25.00. These sell for mostly just meat.

I have New Zealand NP. I have a litter due in 9 days. I plan on letting them go for $25-$30 These sell mostly for just meat.

I also have Holland Lops P. I sell these anywhere between $40-$50. Depending on if it is a pet, breeder, or 4-h.

I pay right about $17 for a 50# bag of feed, $20 for a bundle of 50# hay then I rotate weekly between carrots, lettuce, and other things which I get a really good deal on because the farmers market is right down the road and everyone knows me because of my pigs.

If it is for a Pet,
the average price is $25.00 to 30.00 often it is less.
Show quality is $40.00 and up depending on specifics.
Meat Rabbits are $2.50 per pound live weight.
I do not butcher, the purchaser does their own.
Although I often give a lot more than expected.
Probably do to my being a 4H rabbit club leader for so many years
previously. I just like to see people going home happy.

I charge $30 for bucks, $40 for does.
I breed Mini Rex and Mini Lop (US).
I don't charge for pedigree, it comes free with rabbits
I sell for pet, brood, and possibly show... I'll likely end up charging mor for Show Quality, but I'm still learning how to evaluate them

I do offer a Special Needs discount of 50% (because animals have been proven to reduce stress, if someone wants to buy a rabbit for a special needs friend or relative, its 50% discount, because they go through so much, and I want to be able to give them some relief of that)

I only raise meat rabbits, I sell for $2.50 / lb live wt, and add $3 to butcher.
-- I don't sell pets, --
--if someone wants a pet I suggest they go to "Best Friends" animal shelter, down the road and adopt one, that way when they change their mind ,they will take it back, I won't take any back "ever"

1 - Half NZW / Flemish Giant Doe

Pet Price $20 - $30 Depending on age - Additional $10 for 1 wk of pellets and 2LBS of hay

#50 16% pellets - $14.50
#25 Boss - $12.50
