    I was thinking about getting the Black, Black-Necked and Coscoroba Swans but what do I need to raise these swans?[​IMG]

    The water, the pool, feed, nests, shelter, and etc......



    Thanks

    An internet post isn't the best place to start, grab some books first. You just so happen to live in a state (NC) with several of the biggest ornamental waterfowl collections out there, go visit people who keep the birds, see how they keep them firsthand. Private message me for contacts if you want them.

    Here's some good book ideas:
    Waterfowl- Care, Breeding and Conservation by Simon Tarsnane
    Encyclopedia of Aviculture- Glen Holland
    Natural History of the Waterfowl- Frank Todd
