We have a tag for that only has two questions. I'm not really sure I see what the tag is adding to the questions, they seem to be a bit meta/descriptive to me.

Are these tags worth keeping around? What types of questions should be using the tag?

I don't know. Looking at both questions currently tagged, they're asking about the effect of crossbreeding on a behaviour or health attribute and so the concept is specifically relevant to the question. I think the tag may be more useful as instead, though, making it more appropriate as a stand-alone tag.

  • Would a tag for [crossbreeding] be an important enough distinction from the existing [breeding] tag? – Spidercat Mar 18 '15 at 21:24
  • @MattS. - Crossbreeding introduces other conditions beyond normal same-breed breeding in most species of animals, so I tend to think so. In the case of one question, for example, the crossbreeding implication was about a behavioural trait that would definitely not be eliminated by normal breeding. – John Cavan Mar 18 '15 at 21:27
  • I agree with the change to crossbreeding, especially because it removes the pluralization need for crossbreed. – JoshDM Mar 19 '15 at 19:49
