Abstract

Data on different productive and reproductive traits recorded from New Zealand White and
Soviet Chinchilla breeds of rabbit for a period of four years were analyzed, while weaning of kits was practiced in three different ages ie at 30days, 36 days and 42 days. Analysis of data revealed that weaning age had caused significant (P 0.05) effect on litter size at weaning, post-weaning average daily gain and mortality %.
