Policy on Purchasing a Rabbit
 
If you plan to purchase a rabbit, a 50% non-refundable deposit must be made within 2 days of the agreement for which animal you plan to buy.  We will accept Mastercard and VISA through Paypal to hold the rabbit for you.  The remaining 50% must be paid when the rabbit is picked up and paid in cash.  If the rabbit is over 2 months of age and ready to leave Bay Colony Farm, you must make arrangements to pick up the rabbit within 2 weeks after sending the deposit.  We will do everything within our power to make suitable pick up/drop off plans, but if we don't hear from you within that two week time frame, we will assume that you do not want the rabbit and we reserve the right to sell it to someone else.

We do not sell rabbits any younger than 2 months of age.  By that time, we are able to see how well they conform to their standard and see if they are better suited for breeding or pet quality.
 
Buying a rabbit is approximately an 8 year committment on your part.  They require food, shelter from wind, rain and other animals (like dogs, raccoons, skunks, coyotes, etc.) AND most importantly, love.  They are NOT a good pet for small children, unless the parent is willing to take on all responsiblity for care.  Even then, rabbits require gentle handling, and need to be supervised with small children, pets, and around the house at all times because they will chew on things, including electrical cords.
 
We will not accept checks for the payment of the rabbits. 
 
Visits to the Farm
 
At this time, we do not allow visits to the farm.  We do this to protect the health and safety of our animals.  People can carry in germs and disease, and some of these illnesses can live for several months, through heat and extreme cold.  Please do not ask to visit us.  We are more than happy to talk to you about which animal will work best for you (I consider their personalities as much as I do their health and mothering abilities when selecting rabbits for sale).  And we are willing to meet people at other locations to deliver your rabbit to you.
 

Shipping Rabbits

We will ship rabbits from Bay Colony Farm within the U.S.  I have done this before successfully, but it is very costly and time consuming, therefore I only recommend this if you are buying show/breeding quality animals.
 
Besides the custom made carrier fee, the vet certificate fee, food fee, and the airline fee, I charge an additional $100 to ship rabbits.  This is because I have to travel 40 miles to the closest airport and have animals there for 6 a.m. on the date they are to be shipped.  This $100 covers my time and gas.
 
If you do want animals, shipped, please contact us.  Otherwise, I am happy to try to locate a breeder closer to you.
