How much to sell a good Mini Lop for?
I'm in 4-H and breed my own show rabbits. Just this year I decided to breed; other years, I would but good show prospects and just show them. So, this is a new experience on breeding and then selling.
I have pedigreeds and they come with a rabbitry brochure, a weeks supply of food, a dieses/sickness chart and how to cure them. Their pedigrees are very, very good! Their parents have superve ears, bodies, coloring (opal with excellent ring defination) and heads. I think the doe I bred the buck to has a "doe type head"; but she is still showable.
If anyone can help me out, it would be appreciated. Thank-you for reading!
I'm in the ARBA and all of the local rabbit and Mini Lop RBAs. I'm even in the state's Mini Lop RBA

It really depends on the area and market you are selling to.
There are 3 different types of show rabbits and I usually go by this when selling my Mini Rex
ShowABLE rabbits - Rabbits that are technically "showable" (no DQs, correct weight, color etc.), but wouldn't do squat on the show table. These are normally what I would consider "pet quality" and I sell for $20 without their pedigrees
Good show rabbits - Youth rabbits, or that stand a good chance at variety or class, possibly breed or opposite as well. These usually start at $30 and can go up to $80
One heck of a show rabbit - Open quality, really nice rabbit that has awesome type, color and fur that stands a good chance at BOB or BIS. I usually sell these for $100+
I would go by what you feel they are worth, and what you can sell them for without going broke (rabbit feed is expensive). I would also talk to other breeders in your area and see what they sell their stock for. Taking your rabbits to ARBA shows is a great way to market your better quality animals.Source(s): ARBA youth breeder of Mini Rex rabbits for over 8 years

If you show rabbits you must be in a club. Check out other members.Source(s): Friends.
