"...but if you read other forums you would find this info to be inaccurate. most of the time if offspring are hatched from a hybrid breeding then they are comletely fine most of the time. but when you breed "pure" (a.k.a. limited gene pool) lines consistently ie inbreeding,linebreeding is when you can get mutations and deformaties at higher than normal levels"

Now, this interests me abit.

Granted, Im going off the fact that you said "if you read other forums".

I would theorize (and this is only theory mind you) that the reason you dont see alot of deformed babies as a result of hybridization, while seeing more from linebreeding-inbreeding, is 2 fold:

1. hybridization being looked down upon in many circles, people may not be as willing to share their failures (deformed hybrid hatchlings) as they are their successes (healthy babies); because they feel it may attach some negative stigma to them. even if the community in question DOES look highly upon hybridization, few people share their failures in this sense

2. basically the other side of 1; being that most people who are doing something more commonly accepted will be less likely to fear sharing failures with the community- as what they are doing to begin with is not something likely to cause disdain from the community

I could well be wrong on that, and probably am.

Night.
