Sales Policy and Information
Every rabbit breeder is different and has different ideas about what they believe is a fair and reasonable price for their animals. I price rabbits according to my evaluation of their quality and value. The prices listed on my website are non-negotiable.
Junior (under 6 months old) show/breeding prospects will typically start at $60-75 and go up from there depending on a variety of factors. These rabbits are sold with pedigrees. Please remember that since they are juniors, I cannot guarantee their future performance on the show table or as breeding stock. I do guarantee that they will be free of all known disqualifications at the time of sale.
Senior (over 6 months old) show/breeding stock that have GC legs or are proven herd bucks or brood does may be priced higher, depending on the quality and age of the animal. These rabbits are sold with their pedigrees and any ARBA legs or GC certificates they have earned.
Pet quality rabbits are usually around $40-50. Pet rabbits are perfectly healthy, loving bunnies, but do not possess the qualities that I believe would make them suitable as show or breeding stock. I also sell retired show/brood animals as pets to loving homes. I am quite attached to some of these rabbits, and may be particular about the homes they go to.
Rabbits sold as pets do not come with pedigrees.
Prices are subject to change at my discretion.
Rabbits must be paid for in full before you take them home, and any deposits must be received before I will consider your bunny on hold. I require cash or PayPal transactions.
All rabbits are sold with a several page rabbit care document and a one week supply of Purina Show Rabbit Chow. Show/breeding rabbits are sold with a 3 generation pedigree. Animals that have earned ARBA legs or GC certificates will come with that paperwork as well.
Here at Morning Star Rabbitry we guarantee that the rabbits we sell are healthy and ready for new homes at the time of purchase. Each rabbit sold comes with a one week limited health guarantee subject to the following conditions:
If a bunny becomes sick or dies within 7 days of going home, you may receive a full refund of the purchase price or apply the purchase amount towards exchange of a like value rabbit as soon as one becomes available. In order to receive a refund/credit, you must furnish evidence that the illness/cause of death is due to a pre-existing illness or condition that was present at the time the rabbit left our rabbitry.
Any evidence of improper diet, heat stroke, failure to follow feeding instructions, physical accidents, injury caused by other animals, neglect and/or abuse will render this warranty VOID.
We will not be held responsible for any prior or future veterinary expenses. All veterinary expenses incurred are the sole responsibility of the purchaser.
It is the buyer's responsibility to fully inspect show/brood animals prior to purchase to ensure they are the gender and quality expected.
- Morning Star Rabbitry does not sell rabbits under the age of 7 weeks old. No exceptions. Selling rabbits younger than 7 weeks of age is irresponsible on the breeder’s part, considering the health and proper weaning of litters
- No sales to anyone under the age of 18 without a parent or guardian present at the time of sale. We support and encourage youth breeders, but want to ensure that parents are aware of the exchange.
- As we’re working with live animals, I reserve the right to refuse a sale at any time, for any reason. If I cancel a sale, any deposits received will be refunded.
I do my best to honestly evaluate the overall type and quality of each rabbit I sell and price the animal accordingly. However, I cannot make any guarantees as to the development and eventual show/breeding performance of Junior animals (those under 6 months of age at time of purchase)
I do guarantee that at the time of sale, rabbits sold as show/brood animals will be in good health and free of any known DQ's (disqualifications). It is the buyer's responsibility to fully inspect show/brood animals prior to purchase to ensure they are the gender and quality expected.
Life Time Return Policy:
When buying from Morning Star Rabbitry, you gain our lifetime support and advice. We love our rabbits and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Also, while we hope that our rabbits are leaving to go to their forever homes, we understand that sometimes circumstances change. If you find that you can no longer provide the care that your rabbit needs, please contact us. We welcome back any rabbit we have sold, at any time, free of charge. Although, due to cage space limitations, we may ask that you provide the cage and feeding containers for your rabbit.
Morning Star Rabbitry offers no implied guarantees regarding the purchase of listed rabbits. Guarantees are specifically limited to this policy. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our sales policy, please feel free to send me an e-mail with your questions.
