  Data were collected on rabbits kept at the National Animal Production Research Institute Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. The data were collected over 7 year period. The trait studied included average Litter Size at birth (LS), Average Birth Weight (ABWT), Average Weaning Weight (AWWT) and Gestation Length (GL). ABWT ranged from 46.67±4.05 to 52.84±2.94 in the late dry and early wet season, respectively. Average weaning weight and litter size were highest for rabbit born during the early rain period with a value of 12407plusmn;78 g and 5.18 kits, respectively. The highest average birth weight was recorded for kits born during the 3rd parity with a value of 51.4±3.65 g. The average weaning weight also follow a similar trend. Litter size was however highest for kits belonging to parity 4. AWWT and LS were significantly correlated with ABWT with a value of 0.22 and -0.43, respectively. The correlation coefficient of AWWT with LS and Parity were -0.14 and 0.32, respectively. All other correlations were small and non-significant.

  A total of forty (40) growing rabbits with an average initial weight of 921.5g were randomly allotted to five dietary treatments containing 0, 10, 20, 30 and 40% palm kernel cake as replacement for soyabean cake respectively. All diets were formulated to be isonitrogenous (20% CP). The final live weights of the rabbits were higher in the control diet compared to those on palm kernel cake diets. With the exception of the rabbits placed on 40% level of palm kernel cake daily feed intake, daily weight gain and feed efficiency values compared favourably with those on control diet. Carcass weight and weight of primal cuts expressed as percentage of carcass weight did not show any significant difference between the treatment means. Animals on 40% palm kernel cake diets had the highest (P< 0.05) cost per kg gain compared to those on other dietary treatments. It was concluded that palm kernel cake can be used up to 30% level in a maize – soyabean meal based diet for grower rabbits without adverse effect on the performance of the animals.

  A feeding trial using sixty (60) weaner rabbits with an average initial live weight of 560 ± 0.80g was conducted to determine the effects of different methods of processing neem seeds on their performance and carcass characteristics. The rabbits were assigned to five dietary treatments based on their initial live weight and sex. There were twelve individually caged rabbits per treatment. The diets were formulated to be isonitrogenous (18% CP). Diet 1 (control) was a Maize-Groundnut cake based diet without neem seed. Diets 2, 3, 4 and 5 had raw milled neem seed (RMNS), hydraulic press neem seed cake (HNSC), Solvent Extracted neem seed cake (SNSC) and Expeller neem seed cake (ENSC) included at 20% level, respectively. Feed and water were offered ad libitum. Weekly feed intake and body weight changes were determined and feed efficiency calculated. At the end of the 63-day feeding trial, four rabbits per treatment were selected based on the group average weight and sacrificed for carcass evaluation. Blood samples were also obtained from the animals to evaluate Packcell volume (PCV), Haemoglobim (Hb) and Total protein (TP). The results showed that rabbits fed the processed neem seed cake diets had growth performance that were statistically comparable to those fed the control diet. Animals on processed neem seed cake diets had significantly (P< 0.05) improved performance over and above those fed the raw neem seed diets. Animals on raw neem seed cake diet had consistently low value for PVC, Hb and TP. The use of solvent extracted neem seed cake in rabbit diet was favoured in this study.
