start with state or country: SW Ontario located near two large cities.

Breed: Price (NP=not pedigreed OR P=pedigreed)

NOTE: I just have a price for each, prices can vary by the breed, age, type or quality of rabbit. I tuck on an Extra $10 if the rabbit is one that I want to keep. Thus the $50 range. Most fancy stock bucks sell for $25-30, most does sell $30-40. All rabbits come with a non-pedigreed unless people want a pedigree AT TIME OF SALE. Pedigrees have no charge to them at that time. If you want a pedigree after the fact I'll charge you $10 for my time.

Mixed breeds - $15-20
Rescues - $20
Harlequins (p or np) - $15-20
Polish (p or np) - $20-50
Holland Lops (p or np) - $30-50

What are the majority of your Sales in order from greatest to smallest
Pets,Breed Stock,Meat,Show.

Price per 50# of feed- $15.50

Ohio

My price scheme is a little complicated
Holland Lops and Jersey Woolys (the only breeds I sell as pets).

Pet $25-35
Show quality 4mos and up $40-65
Proven doe/buck (only show quality rabbits are bred)$40-$75
Rabbits with legs $60 and up

Silver Fox and Rex
Show quality 3mos and up $40-50
Proven doe/buck (only show quality rabbits are bred)$50-$75
Rabbits with legs $40 and up

Undecided for the Angoras, but I know what I paid for mine is way less than they are worth.


Most sells are Holland pets, and Rex snake food
Price of 50# feed $17.97

West Virginia

All pedigreed 3 generations, breed doesn't matter as I've paid and what I ask is about the same each breed I have (doesn't include any gas just the basic cost of the rabbit), Holland Lop, Lionhead, Mini Rex:
Show: $75.00+
Breeding: $55.00+
Pet only (no pedigree ever goes with pet): $25-$40

Meat sales at show cull buyer are $1.00 or $1.25 live weight per lb IF rabbits are between weight limits for cull buyer. Most time its 3lbs-6lbs, under or over gets less or none if really small but they'll still take them for you if you want to send them.

I buy Manna Pro Gro 18% in 50lb bags for 18.99 plus tax. I have to drive almost 1.5hrs to get it though too.

Changes as of 06/01/2014

I've had a few offer for sale at the $30.00 mark in Mini Rex, brood/pet quality prospects, with no sale so the market has slowed considerably versus early spring and they'll probably end up as other purposed. Feed has risen again, now paying $20.99 for a bag of a different off brand as could no longer get fresh MPG and still have to drive over an hour to get it at that price. I am looking into alternatives again as well as cutting back the number of rabbits I have since I am not getting no where near enough kids from Holland Lops even for other purposes to make paying that for feed reasonable.

I am sure you all are busy but I was really hoping more of you guys would participate, 80 views and only 10 replies :cry: Maybe we can get a few more but I love the info I am getting so far. I thinks its interesting seeing how cost and prices vary by region and country.

Silver Fox; Black $50. Blue, $70. Lilac & chocolate $80. Pedigreed.
Californian, $25. Pedigreed. Breeding age, $35.
Mutts, $15.
Don't have any NZ as things fell through and I want big, fast growing stock, not whimpy animals like before.
I give out parent names that I have for non-pedigreed if they want them to do some kind of paper trail, free of charge.
