Abstract

A feed conversion efficiency experiment was conducted on 21 Californian White bunnies from 5 to 16 weeks of age. Month of birth had significant influence on weight gain and feed conversion efficiency, while the sex of bunny did not affect the feed intake, weight gain and feed conversion efficiency significantly. The heritabilities, genetic and phenotypic correlations were estimated for the feed intake, weight gain and feed conversion efficiency.
