Abstract: Twenty crossbred rabbit of mixed breeds with average initial weights of between 823.7518.52 and 865.2519.46 g were used in a feeding that trial lasting for 8 weeks to evaluate the effect of feeding sun-dried cassava peel-blood meal mixture (SDCP/BM) based diet in a ratio of 3:2. The rabbits were randomly assigned to five treatments of four rabbits each in a completely randomized design experiment. The SDCP/BM mixture was included at 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% levels. Performance characteristics evaluated included daily feed intake, weight gain, feed: gain ratio and some internal organs characteristics. The results showed that the performance characteristics of rabbits fed varying inclusion levels of SDCP/BM mixture compared favourably well (p>0.05) with the control diet. It was concluded that SDCP/BM mixture in the ratio of 3:2 can be included in the diets of rabbits up to 20% level.
