    This is just pictures and stories of my swans, Elliot and Victoria (maybe Death of the Night Rose, my black swan, but she's awfully mean) so if you like swans, here's some pics!

    Elliot and Victoria are beautiful and looks like they have a nice body of water to swim/bathe in. Unfortunately my Gunther ad Gracie don't so only using a large kiddie pool at this time while I research something larger. They are a year old now. You say your Blk Aussie swan is mean? I've heard when the females lay eggs the pen and cobb won't let care takers anywhere around them. Not sure how that will work with me cleaning their swan house, run and yard. I also walk them into the house/run to protect them from predators nights.

    Well let's see, my black swan Rosie decided to beat up 2 khakis a few days ago killing them both... I actually got her free (no wonder) when she was a baby, I found her in my forest and raised her with my ducks.

    On a happier note, Victoria and Steven (canadian goose) decided to take a walk together ;) it was so cute. I just hope Elliot doesnt get jealous! Victoria is Elliot's mate.

    And yes my water fowl has a 60 acre pond, with 2 swamps and 6 acre of land. So there very happy!

    Rosie, my blackaussie is mean 24/7 maybe it's her hobby :/

    She could be lonely :/ I'm sorry about your khaki campbells I know swans can be unpredictable when it comes to them being around other waterfowl esp when the swan is aggressive,

    How old was she when u found her?

    And that sounds so cute since Geese and swans don't usually get along I'm so glad there is somebody out there who has some that get along like 2 peas in a pod :)

    She was a cygnet. I thought (I didn't have any knowledge about swans at the time) she was a duckling. I raised her fine with my ducklings. I know she doesn't have a mate, but I can't afford another blackAussie right now because were redoing the pig pen. And Rosie is about 2 years now. She swims with Victoria and Elliot, but she may have aare and nest somewhere because she disappears for 3 months every year only to come back for food. The weird thing is... I live in NY.
