    And these are the swans I want to get and place with the ducks if it is possible. I do think I have enough space

    I have Muscovy ducks and 2 geese Embden and Toulouse my set up is a very large piece of property with their houses inside of this, no pond just a large kiddy pool I keep My Muscovy's from flying by clipping one wing my drakes are too heavy to fly,If you want to see some nice set ups for the type of ducks your getting you should go here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/46/ornamental-fowl-swans-etc
    Also I know destinduck would give you info on how he is set up for his ornamental ducks and you'll get to talk to others who have nesting for these ducks too, I still hope you'll post in the reg ole duck thread though your finished pond and your ducks when you get them on it. all the best in your project.

Yes and I am explained breeder I have about 30 spied iets of chikens wich are worth per pair 30 euros or up.
