I want swans, but I'm questioning if their worth my time and money. First, the money. I'm planning to get a nice hunk of poultry. 209 birds to be exact: 55 chickens, 48 ducks, 16 geese, 15 turkeys, 15 guinea fowl, 50 pheasants, 5 peafowl, around 3 emus, and 2 swans. The total amount for that many birds: Around $5,563.17, $2600 for the 2 swans alone. That leaves $2963.17 if I take the swans out. That's not even counting my huge poultry barn. The dimensions on that are going to be around 170'x75'. That price will obviously be pretty high too. It won't be as high because I'm making it myself. Then there is the enviroment problem. I'm not even remotely sure on how to make their living area. They're supposed to live in a pond during their life. I'm in North Dakota. We don't have huge ponds that often. Some times they're dried out and sometimes their frozen. I'm not sure how to make their living area. Then there is just the final factor, is it worth it? I know they look really pretty, but how cool are they? Are they really worth all the hastle and hustle?
