Abstract

Rabbit has been encouraged by the FAO (1987) for meat production in the developing countries due to its high prolificacy, outstanding growth rate, shorter generation interval and utilization of low grain and fibre rich feed stuffs. The broiler rabbits are an important source of meat in developed countries where rabbit rearing has been taken upon commercial proportions. It can also serve as alternative source of cheap animal proteins to mitigate the negative impacts of malnutrition in infants and adults which are prevalent in the developing countries. Rabbit production is very essential in improving animal protein intake in developing countries. This is because rabbit is very prolific animal as determined by the number of kits born alive at kindling and birth to weaning viability (Orunmuyi et al., 2006).
