    I am breeding greenhead Australian Spotted ducks. I think your drake is related to my hens but the ducklings will be removed a generation and should not be too closely related. The ducklings I have available right now are out of ten hens and three drakes so there is some genetic diversity even though they hatched at the same time. The hens are all related to each other (out of Bev's flock) but the drakes are not related to any of the hens. I will have two lines this year in order to be able to pair ducklings for breeding.
