Im just surprised there is more than one. I can understand a one off... but not as a mutation sold freely. But i do prefer natural colours of the bird.The one in the article wasn't deliberate. They had an aviary of tiels and one male galah in there.
Plenty of tried doing it since however.
It's no different to people breeding the different macaw species together. They can give it a fancy name and get more money for it. So once they know it is possible they'll do it for money.Im just surprised there is more than one. I can understand a one off... but not as a mutation sold freely.

Im in no way supporting this
However, isnt that how different species occur? Through cross breeding? Perhaps not in birds
But dogs, labradoodles cost a fortune, some people hate that since they are a mongrel, but wouldnt the Labrador at some point be a cross between two dogs?
So say if people bred galatiels with galatiels, you'd end up with a whole flock of them and couldnt they be considered a species as much as an african grey
Im probably making no sense....
