Abstract: Data on 755 kindlings observed in White Giant (n,374) and Soviet Chinchilla (n,381) breeds of rabbits between the year 2005 and 2009, were analyzed to assess the influence of genetic and non-genetic factors on different traits at tropical climatic conditions of Tamil Nadu. The overall least-squares means for litter size at birth and weaning, litter weight at birth and weaning and pre-weaning growth rate were 5.1, 3.9; 260.5 g, 2537.6 g; 51.6 g, 668.4 g and 14.5 g, respectively. Breed had highly significant effect only on litter weight at weaning, individual kit weight at weaning and pre-weaning growth rate.
