    Hi, I have recently built a chook pen and am going to put 3 hens in there for eggs and I also want to breed some Khaki"s to hopefully sell at the local markets and just for the fun of it. I only want to only get two ducks because I don't want the pen to get to crowded. I have provisions in place for the ducks. Two questions.
    1) will there be any troubles having ducklings in with chooks.
    2) do I need to buy the male and female from different breeders so as to not inbreed them.
    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks Dave.

    I'm assuming chooks are chickens? If so no there shouldn't be any troubles however most people like to keep them separate as ducks like wet where chickens don't. You don't have to buy them from different breeders unless the breeder you are getting them from only has one group of parents. If the breeder has more than one breeding pair id say it'd be a greater chance of not inbreeding them. If you'd rather get some from different places that's fine too.
