I made such list because some hybrids are very rare, new ones are created (the newest hybrid in this list was bred in 2021) and I easily forget their names and confuse which one is which one... I wasn't sure if to keep the list only privately or not but I decided to share it here because some of them are very hard to find and are rarely mentioned in such lists (if ever) - I think I can say that since now it's the longest list available on the Internet

If you know a hybrid name which isn't mentioned, you can tell and I may add to the list. I know there are more hybrids (eg Miligold x B&G) but they aren't named yet and these won't be included. Also, none of the "Voren's macaws" was included (scarlet x severe or scarlet x yellow-collared)

Note: This post is more just as a trivia. If you want a hybrid, double consider it (I would say - don't breed them. But I don't see anything against rescuing). There are many people against crossbreeding (including me - I found it interesting what has been bred but personally I wouldn't support it). Next generation may be less healthy, the risk increases when you cross less related species/hybrids.

I agree 100%, hybrids are done strictly to produce visually startling specimens, not for any sound species strengthening. Hybrids are rife with medical issues, some of which are not apparent until the parrots is either sick or dying. Rescue, yes, breed on purpose, hell no.

Today I added some new hybrids to the list. Also, I found two named hybrids with golden conures, so I decided to include them too (one of them was supposed to show that golden conures are closer related to macaws than other conures. Also, I added 1 more generation
