I have some New Zealand whites x Flemish Giants for sale. They are 8 weeks old, born new years eve/new years day.
I have a few extra that I didn’t plan for, as my male got in with one of the girls some how or she go out and I have an extra litter.
I know it can be a little harder to get meat sized rabbits, these are fine for pets very friendly or good for breeding or the pot.
$30 each males and females. I’ll post photos tomorrow.
Any questions feel free to ask.
I have added some photos of the bunnies for sale, DH was sitting in the cage to take them.February 24, 2012 at 11:15 pm #520565EdiediohMember
Pitty you live so far away. 🙁February 25, 2012 at 12:02 pm #520566VanessaMember
Iduna I am interested. We had been looking into breeding rabbits to eat. DP used to go shooting and his parents always loved him bringing home rabbit for for them, but now due to so many farmers having had “not so responsible” people on their properties they are very reluctant to let anyone on who they don’t know.
Do you breed them to eat?? What sort of cage set up do you have??February 25, 2012 at 12:43 pm #520567
I use to go bunny hunting when I was a teen but we didn’t go shooting as you had said. One farmer I knew had his dog shot when they came too close to the house.
But back to the rabbits, mine are bread to be meat rabbits but I’m okay with them being pets if that’s what someone would rather have.
We are still building cages as we breed them, just not able to build the last couple with the hot weather. I’ll take some photos so you can see it better.
With the smaller cages I have the bricks/rocks on top as if they really want they can clime out I watched one of the girls do it. The nesting boxes can be removed when not needed they are cabled tied in place with shade cloth on the bottom to help stop the fur from falling through he wire.
With the big cage I need to replace the cloth on the hammocks and they can climb up there and they dig holes and tear the cloth.
We just pick up and move the cages to under the veranda when it’s going to rain. We are still looking at building something that can go around them to protect them from the rain but not be too hot in summer.February 26, 2012 at 2:49 pm #520568karyn26Member

Sorry for taking so long to reply, TAFE has me tied in nots with the work I have to do, it feels like a giant waste of time.
Anyway I did sell two over the weekend, the couple wanted them as pets which I’m fine with. I have 5 left, the greys and the whites.
