I put this website on the forum a while back.

http://www.rhug.co.uk/index.asp

It really is an interesting place to visit and somewhere to pop in for a cup of coffee and a good well made burger in order to break your journey but ! :smt103 :smt103 :smt103 We dropped in there on Sunday coming back from Hereford and as we passed a very nicely presented butchers shop I saw something that made my mouth drop in credulation. They were selling locally caught wild rabbit for 4.75p . :smt103 :smt103 :smt103
Afterwards, two things came to mind. Firstly how much more expensive would they have been if the rabbits had had to travel any distance other than just across the fields ? and secondly, thank God nobody had thought to stick an organic label on them. ::

4.75p for a rabbit is something that us rabbiters can only dream of, the price was way too high and was surely a case of someone trying to take the p*** and the money out of the public. :angry4:

i think we have had the rabbit price thread before, but that seems pretty average, rabbits are around that here, snipe a snip at 1.25 each and a young grouse 7.50...a pheasant is cheaper than a rabbit 6 a brace.

It's just - just - worth the effort of paunching them, but as for skinning a whole bunch of bunnies to get 75p each, when I'm getting a quid each to kill them in the first place - sod that.

Here's a thread dragged up from the past. We popped in at the Rhug Estate Shop yesterday and oven ready wild rabbits are now 5.50p each.

Check the prices out on their website.

I think that we're the idiots for not valuing our own produce highly enough.

Years ago I used to go lamping and the Lurcher used to catch quite a few.
He was a bit hard mouthed and used to crush the rib cage to stop them scratching him.
When I used to paunch and skin them I fed the paunch skin head and front end to the pigs . They loved it.
Once i threw a whole rabbit in to see what would happen.
The pig placed one foot on the rabbit and the body in it's mouth and ripped it in half- In a few minutes nothing left !

I might get a few hundred pounds worth tonight. I've just given Pugh a call to arrange to go lamping. Its certainly nice and windy, I just hope that the rain keeps off.

Just to drag this up again, of your looking for better prices on your rabbits I would seriously recommend joining a reptile forum as there are many many snake keepers who will take them off you hands.

A big rabbit, skin on, guts in, as it is, is about 10 to buy in from pet shop. Snake owners will pay for them, and so will pet shops around here.  

I know a boy in Essex looking for a regular supply if that helps anyone.

A local butcher used to take Ferreted rabbits off us for 1 each

Nowadays we can only get 50p each from the Game dealer we sell all our shot game from the shoot too.
