Has TCE observed whether hybrids of Chinese and common forms [of geese] were wilder, or less tame, than both parents?

Will you forgive me troubling you with a question, which you can answer by “yes” or “no”. Did you observe that your hybrids between the Chinese & common form, were at all wilder or less tame than both parents?f2 I have been informed that this is sometimes the case with hybrids, as with those from common & Musk Duck.f3
