Try looking really close to the waters edge. Ducks and geese usually nest like in the cat tails and the tall grass that is really close to the water. Or when they hatch there Swanlings(I have no idea what a baby swan is called,lol)just snatch them and stick them in your brooder,lol

On occasion on eBay or Eggbid. They seem pretty pricey, though.

Be careful of the parents if you really are thinking of finding their nest....they are WORSE than geese (and bigger!)

Oh and babies are called cygnets. smile

:o Whoa! $126 for one egg? Talk about being nervous about shipping and incubating!
   They have an exotic animal sale in Mt. Hope, Ohio in the spring and fall and they auction off swans for a couple of hours there. I don't have a pond so during the swan part of the auction I usually use that time to get something to eat and whatnot. So, I'm not sure on the prices, but I do know they are over $200 a swan.

   I type using a bigger font size because my new glasses suck and I can't read anything small with them.

The Gamebird and Conservationist's Gazette has lot of ads in the back for swans and many other exotic fowl.
Good Luck- they are expensive!
