Elena Costăchescu, Lenuţa Fotea, G. Hoha
Biological characteristics of rabbit recommend this species to be increased and operating different systems. Race Blue Vienna was imported in recent years in Romania, especially by private breeders to be increased for meat and fur farms in specific circumstances. Research has covered a number of indices of breeding female and correlations between them. The study was conducted on 45 females who followed: during pregnancy, number of rabbits birth, number of rabbits weaned, breast-feeding losses and their causes. The data were statistically processed and interpreted. Recorded data and observations allowed the conclusion that the issue of race Blue Vienna adapted conditions for growth and established correlations between breeding evidence showed that during pregnancy and parturition number of the negative influence prolificacy. Pearson correlations between prolificity during pregnancy and have positive and significant r value being 0.636.
