Has anyone else seen this?
Is it just me or are these a little "interesting"
I hope he is not getting too many Hybrids.

The tri's are blueface hybrids, they are too big to be tri's. I've seen these hybrids before and it's a darn shame to see them being sold as taminbars and also the blue face x redface. :cry:

Maybe you should contact him and tell him not to sell them/not to breed hybrids in the future.

Nobody will be going out where he is due to the lockdown at the moment. Plus the roads out there are all full of firetrucks due to a fire that has already taken out 71 properties and over 7000hectares.

I must say that is EXTREMELY ignorant of that person selling hybrids. In my opinion they should be kept quiet between the breeder and instead of selling them on a website as large as gumtree, better off to either keep them themselves OR, give them to someone else you know will not breed them. A good mate of mine has a massive mixed collection and accidentally produced a Black rumped double bar x Plumbhead hybrid. He did the right thing with them, gave them to a friend who was just after a couple birds for a cage and not to be bred from. The thing that gets me most about that ad is they are requesting money for such hybrids. Just another way of ruining perfectly good birds AND our hobby.
