    I will be getting my first ducks ever in a couple of months and I'm getting welsh harlequins. My only question is I will be getting rabbits in the next month and I'm taking a lot of precaution to ensure I'm getting unrelated rabbits, should I also be buying the drake and ducks from seperate breeders to ensure against inbreeding?

    It depends on what your goals are.

    A little inbreeding from good lines is fine.

    However, you might not want to carry it on past a generation or two.
