Juz want to know what is hybird?
Hybrids would be an offspring from two different species. They don't normally occur in nature and are usually "forced" to mate in captivity. Yes, hybrids of campbells and winter whites are a no-no because they will be prone to problems.

If you spot anything wierd about a petshop, report it to AVA. I once passed a petshop and it was terrible. There was a cage of mother hamster with newborns but the bedding was not enough. Then, there was another small rusty cage with 2 rabbits inside. The rabbits couldn't move at all. Worse, all the cages were left outside exposed to sun and rain. I was so cheeseed that I emailed a long letter to AVA about the shop. A week later, the shop went bust! I was so happy!!! Although the owner had lost his livelihood, I feel that it's a punishment he deserves for ill treating the animals.

, but the mule is sterile. similarly, the ham hybrid may be physically healthy, but it will most likely have genetic diseases, not commonly seen in purebred hams sorry to pick on u CH...
It is possible but not healthy.
so to make a long story short, hybrid hams can be physically healthy, but genetically diseased.. you may not see physical symptoms immediately...
