    I am looking for a trio of New Zealands to raise meat rabbits. My dream is for the New Zealand Reds but after looking for years I will settle for the white ones. I live in southeast Kansas. I would drive to get the Reds but would rather buy the White ones closer to home.

    We have the NZR's and cals but are in the northeastern part of Colorado. It is about a 8 hour drive from me to OKC but can't remember how far to Wichita. If you don't find anything close we can maybe help with a few. We only have a pair of NZR so it will be a while till we have more babies.

    We have some new zealands for sale here in Northwest Iowa. Not sure how far we are from you, we are close to Storm Lake, Iowa, but we sell our rabbits for $15 each. I have some that are just coming off the mamas and will be ready to go in about 3 weeks. They are very nice babies. We also have Flemish Giant that we selll for $30 each, and have a batch of 5 of those that are are ready now and another litter that again, will be ready in about 3 weeks and would be unrelated to the first batch of flemish. I have about 5 NZ bucks that are currently ready. If we can help you, pm me for a phone number.

    Sarah,
    How old are the rabbits? I have been trying to get the NZ Reds for years. I am very interested in your rabbits if they are of breeding age, or younger.

    Sara,
    I am trying to figure when I can make the trip over there. Give me a few days to check my schedule and perhaps PM me with your address so I can map the trip. I have waited so long to get some NZReds and I don't want to miss this opportunity. thank you.
