Short summary
The objective of this study was to evaluate heterosis, general combining ability (GCA), maternal ability (MA), and sex-linked effects (SL) for growth performance from weaning (4 weeks) up to marketing age (12 weeks) , using a complete 3 x 3  diallel crossing experiment in three different breeds of rabbits: one native Egyptian breed (Baladi Red, RR) and two exotic (Bauscat, BB, and Californian, CC).
