I added the interfamilial bit to the article & the Domestic Fowl & Guineafowl links and I also added the guineafowl hybrids to the list. The Information is indeed accurate as most classification schemes now classify the guineafowl in its own family, along with 7 other species. The guineafowl is a member of the Numididae and the Chicken & Peafowl are members of the Phaisanidae.
P.S. The wolfdog should be removed from the hybrid list as it is a list of interspecific hybrids and the polar bear & congolese spotted lion hybrids should also be removed as there is already a mention of Ursinae & Panthera hybrids.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:47, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
about this dif....OK, really?? Are there reliable sources that say a) that "race" has any meaning outside of the human species; and b) that breeding between two races of humans results in a hybrid? Hm. Jytdog (talk) 22:45, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
that is, respectfully, a piece of crap stub. why would you refer me or anyone to it? (real question) Jytdog (talk) 23:02, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
"Race" is not suitable here, IMHO. I do run across it as a synonym for "breed" in machine translations. In languages other than English "race" and "breed" have different nuances. (Example: Andalusian horse is aka Pura Raza Española -- literally "Pure Spanish Race" though usually translated "Pure Spanish Horse". There is also landrace, which has been described by people like Sponenberg as an early stage of breed formation. That article linked above is quite problematic, linking only to articles by someone who spoke German as a first language. IF we can't find anything better, we may want to merge it somewhere.

I reverted the editor whose other edit looked clearly off to me. It was a no-brainer to revert them from a NPOV perspective. I'll leave the editors here to decide this.
