I feed 3-6 rabbits a month and use the pillowcase meets the concrete method, wouldn't do it on the wood floor like I do the rats and mice but still the same method

Same as rats or mice. You can either gas them with C02 or grab them by the back of the legs and hit them off a wall (or whatever else you can find) or bag 'em and hit them off concrete (driveway or floor).

:P

I have NO moral problem killing the rabbits, my snakes are ten times more important to me, but is there any other way? can I buy dead? and what is the cost of a rabbit? I'm thinking $20 am I off?

is CO2 kinder then the whacking method?

thanks for your help!

Grace

Several places online sell frozen with prices from around $8 for a large to $1-2 a pound at other places. I buy from local breeders and pay $10 a rabbit but it shouldn't be hard to find them for around $6. Asking at local feed stores can usually get the name of someone that buys rabbit feed and then making a private deal isn't hard. I go through so many that I have to buy from 3 different people lol.

Feeder rodents are always more economically priced than pet rodents. <a href="http://www.canadianmouseman.com">The Canadian Mouseman</a> sells frozen rabbits for $5 - $7.50 depending on size............

Try getting a cooler and putting some dry ice in it with the rabbit then put the lid on .The gasses from the dry ice will kill the rabbits!

well i feed many of my snakes rabbits and the ones i feed die of blunt crainial(sp) trauma thus at the end of a well placed hammer to the base of the skullthis will end there life post haste. 20 bucks for a feeder rabbit is way to much i pay five dollars from a breeder and the pet shop will sell them(when they have them for about 8 bucks :hammer:
