    Check the homesteading today forum they have a map with meat rabbit breeders or the ARBA. That is how I found my Cal and NZ.

    I also recommend getting as good quality stock as you can afford. I have backyard bunnies and they aren't nearly as my breeder bunnies. I paid $10 for the backyard cal x nz and 20 for the purbreed cals and NZ.
    I think the difference betwen backyard and breeder bunnies is the same as raising chickens for meat and raising meat chickens.

    You might also search out ARBA sanctioned shows in your area. Do a google search for rabbit shows. I've located sources for both NZ & Californians in my area of Maine but today I got to meet them at a show about an hour south of here.

    As a plus, I was able to watch the judging and pick up some tips of what the judges look for and it may be helpful when I go to buy my breeding stock. I'll be attending another show this spring and will pay even closer attention to the judging.
