    Hello,

    if father and daughter rabbits (of breeding age) or any other family members are bred will it cause a problem like stunted growth or anything else that will ruin the quality or ammount of meat. I am refering to New Zealand or Californian rabbits.

    Thanks

    Tommy

    It is accepted practice to breed father to daughter or mother to son but you dont breed brother to sister.

    it is common method of breeding out bad qualities and breeding in good ones.
