    Finally after 5 tries-she did it...
    here's our Floppy, Netherland Dwarf, Blk Himmie w/ her babies. 5 wks old now. the 2 darker ones, will be sold as pets and the blue is already sold.

    we took her to a rabbit clinic. Had them all checked out, nails clipped, too.

    so, i have a question, how much should we sell her for?

    The pets, we're selling for 10.00 each. (Do you think that's fair?) Their color is off. We've never sold any B4. Please advise...thanks so much. We have 4 more buns from other 1st time mom's, only days old, so all info will help tremendously.

    Depends on your location. Around here in NC, my meat rabbits sell for $12 each. Pet dwarf rabbits go for $30-100 each. Show quality goes sky high. I would advertise them for $30 each and see how it goes. If you've already quoted a price to someone on the blue, don't change it, that's how you get mad customers. If $30 ends up seeming too high for your area, you can always lower it by $5 at a time until someone jumps for them.

    Hope this helps,

    Are they show quality and pedigreed? I would say pet rabits without pedigrees $5-$10 each. Show quality $10 and up with pedigrees. You could get more for the babies if the sire and dam are champion show rabbits. Othwerwise if they aren't, I would say $10-$20 for non pet quality.

    all have papers, mom won BOB at local fair not ARBA show.

    haven't put prices on any of them.

    Buck is a seal color, which i don't think is reconized, points would be taken off. I got him to breed with my himmie, for siamese sables buns, but that didn't happen.
    thanks for help.
