I know that a lot of people are against creating hybrids especially in the bird world, primarily macaws. Many people will tell you that birds do not breed outside their own genus in the wild.

We have seen the results of some beautiful macaws as a result of hybrids. Is it detrimental to the purity of bloodlines? Or, could it in fact strengthen the species? As a habitat of individual species of macaws is diminished there are fewer macaws, more inbreeding will occur, less of a gene pool; weakening the genetics of the species?
