    I buy mine from K&D Cages at shows or buy cages from 4-H ers. I got 1 6 hole free and another 4 hole for 25 dollars.

    I bought 4 holes new and bought feeders and bottles for 185 ish. They were 24" deep and 30" wide (per hole).

    What kinds of bunnies? larger require larger cages.

    I picked up mine at TSC, sometimes a little more $ by buing from a store is cheaper than having something shipped (Ball)

    Craigs list almost always has rabbit stuff listed (how i got 16 rabbits and really crappy cages, they will all be replaced in the spring).

    Wire may be tougher to buy... you may be able to order some from a local farm mill or TSC... Bass sells it, but the shipping is really high.

    You could go onto the ARBA website and find a rabbit show close to you. I would go to it and see if there is a cage dealer near you or ask some of the exibitors if they or anyone they know have cages for sale.
