Abstract:

The data on mortality of White Giant and Soviet Chinchilla rabbit kits spread over four years (2014 to 2017) maintained at organized farm, was analyzed. All kits were reared in the cages under standard management practices and weaned at the age of 28 days. The overall annual mortality rate was observed 29.85% for kits up to six months of age during the study period, while highest mortality was recorded during the year 2014 (52.87%). The results revealed that period has significant (P<0.01) effect on the mortality rate among kits. Mortality rate was higher in the Soviet Chinchilla (38.39%) breed as compared to White Giant (19.10%) breed, but difference was non-significant. The age wise mortality was observed higher in pre-weaning (28.35% during 0-28 days) than post weaning (2.08% during 29-180 days) group. The mortality rate was higher in summer (48.38%; n=30) than monsoon (22.82%; n=21) and winter (19.14%; n=9), but analysis of variance revealed that effect of season on kits mortality was non-significant.
