    I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one astounded by these prices. Hopefully they'll will be some less expensive ones in my area soon [​IMG]

    $125 seems cheap to me for a high quality animal. If you are comparing prices, compare apples to apples. Lesser quality animals are cheaper, but they are not at all the same thing.

    If their rabbits aren't worth that much, they won't be able to sell them.

    That's an unreal price up here too, especially with no mention of papers and wins. ...Now a continental giant I'd pay that price for. XD

    That has GOT to be a grand champion or the stock of one. Parents or the rabbit itself have won best in show or reserve.

    For these prices I'm surprised there was no mention of awards or a Pedigree. We just don't seem to have the best lines in my area.
