    I don't have swans....but I think I've seen on this forum that people do house different breeds of waterfowl together with swans. I think they need plenty if space though. Ask dylanduckman or destinduck on here. Or search your question and I bet you'll find someone you can message and ask. Good luck :)

    We house our ornamental duck (wood ducks, Mandarins, divers, ect) in the same pen with our swans but it is 125ft x 75ft (38M x 22m) and the pen is half water that runs 24/7.

    They do get very aggressive during breeding season and i would never put them in with domestic ducks because the domestics hog food.
