The fattening performance and carcass characteristics of Awassi X Awassi, Ile de France X Awassi (F1) and Chios X Awassi first back cross (B1) ram lambs were compared. Daily gains were 0.301, 0.338 and 0.300 kg, respectively. Feed efficiency values were 3.8, 3.3 and 3.7 in the same order. Carcass yields were 45.2, 47.6 and 47.1%. Bone in cold carcass was 20.3, 18.3 and 20.9% and lean 54.6, 53.7 and 53.3%.
