Twenty-four weaned New Zealand White (NZW) rabbits of six week old having uniform size and body weights were selected. Animals were randomly divided into three groups. The groups were nomenclature as GI, GII and GIII having four, eight and twelve rabbits in each group and the evaluated densities were: 0.38m2/rabbit; 0.19m2/rabbit and 0.12m2/rabbit, respectively. The animals were maintained on same basal diet and weekly body weights, body weight gains, feed consumption, feed conversion ratio are recorded. The study revealed that the rabbits providing 038m2 floor spaces per animal showed better performance in terms of body weights, body weight gains and feed conversion ratio under the climatic condition of Assam.
