Purchasing My Netherland Dwarf Rabbits
stock for Nationals or Convention is pre-sold and many times there is
a wait list. To hold stock for Nationals or Convention, a deposit may
ship out of Syracuse. However, please be aware of airline weather restrictions
that may limit the months of shipping. I strongly encourage purchasing
a minimum of 4 rabbits (ideally 6) for shipping as the price is by weight.
(i.e. It cost the same to ship 1 or 4 or 6. ). Shipping usually runs about
$200 plus price of carrier and rabbits. Health certificate runs about
$50. I prefer to use my own carrier for shipping and charge for the cost
rather than have a carrier sent to me. This assures quality and proper
shipping container (I know what the airline requires). I have used several
airlines but have the best luck currently with American Airlines Cargo
out of Syracuse. There is no charge for gas either as I live about 15
minutes from the airport. I have never lost an animal in all the years
of shipping. They travel well. I do ship overseas primarily to Japan through
a third party. I have also shipped to Singapore with help from a friend
who sends them out of LosAngelas after I ship them to him. Overseas shipments
require USDA certification and that is an additional cost.
Prices for ARBA convention and ANDRC Nationals range from $75 to $150
with exceptional animals priced higher. Lower end brood-type stock is
generally $50 to $75. Pets ranges from $20 to $40. At times I may raise
or lower prices depending on time of year and success in breeding. I do
heat my rabbitry during winter months. This gives me the advantage of
stock available for early spring. However; heating is expensive and prices
reflect this at times.
Rabbit Feed ~
I have used Buckey Rabbit Feed for years and highly
recommend it. It is manufactured out of Ohio and is hard to find in some
areas. I buy mine from Kathy
Whitmore of Whitmore
Stables. I use the 16% protein formula (purple and white bag). If
you purchase a rabbit from me, I will give you a small bag of this feed
to mix with your own.
