Re: Cross Breeding Question

My basic understanding of cross breeding between species is that they can never produce fertile young. For example you cannot breed mules. You can only breed a mule by cross breeding a horse and donkey which will produce a mule which is infertile . In fact if two animals can mate and produce fertile offspring then they are by definition two members of the same species.

Re: Cross Breeding Question

Are there any other images of pre-existing parrot hybrids? I'm not interested in owning a hybrid as I believe breeding hybrids of really any animal is pointless (I'm looking at you all you money grabbing liger breeders) but I think they look so cool and it's interesting to see what they could look like.

If you would like to see that in the 'Natural Process' of Hybrid Parrot Species, I would recommend that your find: The World of Amazon Parrots, by Dieter Hoppe. It is an older book (1992) with newer reprints! Also, look for Encyclopedia of Amazons Parrots, by Klaus Bosch & Ursula Wedde. It like above is an older book (1984) with newer reprints! The World of Amazons is my favorite as it goes into greater detail!

Both will provide too different levels the Natural Ranges and if you watch the Color of the Beaks you can trace back to the base Amazon Species. Its fun and there are excellent examples all around you! The Island Amazon Species are amazing! Hint: The Hybrid 'transitions' can be found within the over-lapping Ranges of each Amazon Species!
