In Reply to: Diamond x JCP hybrid thoughts. jkuroski, please read posted by JohnB on May 09, 2003 at 12:37:13:

It's a borderline issue for me...it would really depend on the status of diamonds on a whole which is hard info to gather. So kind of census should be performed probable with the help of national shows to get an accurate count of all the pure stock that is in the US. Once we establish the captive population size then we can consider if it would be wise to hybridize simply for the benefit of reproduction. The goal would probably be to breed male pure diamonds to high percentage females to retain the look, but maybe gain in the reproductive area. The unknown is whether high percentage crosses will have the same problem or not. Could be a good project... I would hate to see diamonds polluted but would also hate to see them die out. First things first though are collecting data.
