Re: yellow crowned amazon x blue fronted amazon Hybrids????

I understand the interest and yes it can happen in a natural settings.

However, and IMHO, I do not believe in cross-breeding. Things are just as likely to go wrong and with Murthy's Law always lurking in the background more commonly greater than 50/50%. Point being, with the very wide cross-section of Amazons in the world today, I see no reason for cross-breeding.

Please understand that resulting from the loss of natural breeding areas across Central and South America. North America is quickly becoming the only place many Amazons are still available. In addition, transporting some Amazons (and MAC's) in North America is being hindered by Laws designed to protect them.

Please do not Cross-Breed New World Parrots. We need ever pure breed we have.
