[en] In Algeria, the rabbit production is mainly based on local population to ensure a cheap supply of urban markets proteins. This sector may represent an important source of protein which is in large deficit in the country. The rabbit production can be justified by its advantages such as short life cycle and high prolificacy.
The objective of the present study is to evaluate production performances of Kabyle local rabbit population. Litter size, growth rate, body slaughter weight, feed conversion ratio and mortality rate are considered. The experiment was carried out on 30 animals (6 males and 24 females) for reproduction in the Ath Waghlis region (north-east Algeria). Rabbits have been raised in pens with 1 male and 4 females per pen. The commercial feed was supplied ad libitum to animals.
Results reported shown that total number of rabbits born, number born alive, number to weaned, slaughter weight at 84 days of age, feed conversion ratio (from weaning to slaughter) and survival rate (from birth to slaughter) were 7.1, 6.1, 5.3 rabbits, 1.90kg, 3.16 and 73% respectively.
The performances of the Kabyle breed could be improved by purebred selection as well as by crossing with exotic breeds.
