Non additive genetic component that is the base of a quantitative character has no predictability, this is the reason for which the present paper is proposing to appreciate the special combinatory capacity for total gain and average daily gain recorded the finishing period (30-80 days), in a specific crossing scheme combining three rabbit breeds common in Timis County breeders New Zealand White, Large Chinchilla and Californian. The data obtained, were statistically analyzed and demonstrates a good special combinative capacity for these characters, reason for which the crossing scheme is recommended for producing of meat individuals destined for slaughterhouses. This scheme provides an exploitation of the high fervency of the heterozygote at maternal forms and at the final hybrids.
