    Yes thats what I was thinking. The cost is just $25.00 Each. And If I do get them I go thru Kingsville to see the Dr. in Corpus Christi Texas.

    James,
    I've entertained the idea of adding rabbits to our farm. We're near Austin. I was thinking of setting up a long row of pens at ground level, similar to a chicken tractor. I'm not sure on how many I would need to start with or what breed to get. The place I have to put them is southern exposure but has shade from the oak trees. Any suggestions?

    JUst One Talk to the folks who are making it work. Talk to Texas A&M in Kingsville. And read the PRMBA web site. Because what might work for one might not for another.
