    Don't worry. It's a cross between two official breeds.​

    Official as in APA? I have some Red Star/ Golden Laced Polish mixes, but not sure you'd consider a Red Star and official breed.

    Ok, so this would be a rule: If it has a name (like "Red Star"), it counts as a breed. If it's called a _____ and _______ cross or something like that, it's a hybrid

    [​IMG] A hybrid is a cross between 2 different species. It is not the same as a mixed breed, which would be the same species.




    Maybe you could be talking about mixed breeds. I do not think of them as hybrids, but maybe it depends of the definition you read.
