They are basically the same birds that all turned up to a fancy dress party wearing very similar outfits!Imo you're probably not likely to see as major a visual variety in hybridising these guys as you may with, say, macaws. Maybe if you had a lutino IRN, but for the most part psittacula look very similar.
I don't know about sterility... I mean, alex x indian ringneck hybrids are fertile... and african x indian... then again, african and indian are considered same species, separate subspecies. There are likely thousands of alex x IRN hybrids in Australia though because breeders wanted pretty colors in Alexandrines but didn't want to wait for the *natural* mutations to occur.... so they hybridized them.I believe most (if not all) Psittacula species can interbreed, but hybrid offspring are often sterile and shorter-lived.
Not even with a lutino!!! *UNLESS* that lutino was a male... then you'd get some lutino hybrid offspring... but a lutino female? Would be no different than pairing with a normal female...Imo you're probably not likely to see as major a visual variety in hybridising these guys as you may with, say, macaws. Maybe if you had a lutino IRN, but for the most part psittacula look very similar.
Transmutation is used (particularly in lovebirds) to bring a specific mutation to another species, then bred back so that it is as close to ¨pure¨ as can be.IMO I have never understood why someone would purposely breed to get hybrids.
I believe people call them “Sundays” (?)This is Cricket. He's a 16-year-old hybrid sun conure / nanday. I did not breed him. His colors are unique. I've seen one of his clutch mates, and she was more of a muddy brown with a little bit of red. He is loud and nippy, slightly nervous, and very independent. Even though they are part of the same genus, I would not create one of these hybrids myself.
