Data on body weight, body height chest girth, paunch girth, ear length and ear width at 4 and 16 weeks of age of 514 bunnies belonging to New Zealand White (NZW), Grey Giant (GG), Soviet Chinchilla (SC), Remish Giant (FG) and their crosses (F1) were analyzed. Season of birth, litter size at birth and genetic group of bunny significantly influenced all the traits, while sex of bunny had no significant effect. Effects of general combining ability (g.c.a.) and specific combining ability (s.c.a.) were sigtnificant (P
