    First question: *WHY* is the person selling out?

    Second question: *WHY* is the price so cheap?

    Observation: You may well be buying someone else's "problems." On the other hand, if all dictates are good, I would go for the whole lot. At $3.00 each, you can certainly afford to cull as needed! Not much of an option when purchasing only a few.

    Of course, your own financial concerns would naturally take precedence. Likewise, that $3.00 each surely doesn't include cages, etc., too, eh? In any case, I would still try to purchase as many as possible under the circumstances.

    A word of caution if you are unable to purchase the whole lot, however: Do *NOT* buy the rabbits "sight unseen!" You don't need any sneezers, eh? Pick and choose if you can't get the whole lot!
