Hey there,

Im looking for older bucks around my area. There’s one that comes from a reputable rabbity in the colours I want but he’s 5. I’m wondering if that’s too old for a buck, as most places say to retire bucks around that age. Apparently he’s still going strong, but I wanted to ask what age you usually retire bucks at before I commit to anything.
Thanks!

It just depends, but bucks will continue to produce longer than does. If this buck had a litter recently then he should be good to use. Because he may only be productive for another year or two then you shouldn’t have to pay as much as you would for a younger one, IMO.
