I think they'll be selling for good money in a bit if the current financial crisis gets worse,

my dad told me they were a £1 twenty years ago,so with iflation and price rises they should be in the £7 mark now.
you pay £1.50 for a pie these days and there is more meat on a rabbit and better for you.

well i was hoping that a few more may have added their prices to this post a friend of mine has managed to get a regular price of 3 pounds per rabbit based on him supplying 80 rabbits per month and my father sells his to a local zoo for 75 pence each and no paunching required. mean while i have found fresh wild rabbit in my area of swale kent selling between 5 and 10 pounds each oven ready in butchers and farm shops but it is not easy to sell directly to the butcher with out the relevant paperwork.

I only get a quid each for big rabbits, and the guy twitters on about food preparation courses and certificates being on the horizon. I think prices could go up if Rick Stein or Hugh Fearnley-whatshisname push it. As was also said, a recession biting hard could push up prices, but it might not be good news all round as good prices for rabbits would mean stiffer competition to get at them. The doley boys that have never worked would also be out poaching them at night and lying sleeping all day.

our nearest gamedealer pays 75p each.Considering i was getting a pound each 20 years ago it's pretty poor.As a side point,i am a fisherman and i get the same price for lobsters now as i was 20 years ago so it's not just rabbits.

there is only one butcher in my area i have found that sells rabbit, he sells it fressed for £1.99 and buys them in for £1.00, i still cant get permission to snare any where so there no chance of me making a killing selling rabbit :o)

I could get about 3 pound a rabbit where I live. Although I sell them paunched and gutted to the local old women around the village occaisionally. they say it brings them back to the old days when thier husbands would go out poaching
