    Using some info from this site I built a 10 X 16 temporary lake until we can build a pond at our new farm..... Here is Rio & Meera testing it out.
    They are my handicapped Swans so i have a makeshift ramp for them... hehe

    The Black swans, I believe so. I live in FL but I know of others up north that have them with no problems.

    They are beautiful birds. I hear that black swans tend to be more friendly than mute swans. I would like to raise some one day. And, yes, I hear they are winter hardy.

    I am glad to see you and your whole flock are adjusting well to the new farm. I'm sure it has been a lot of work.

    That rooster in the background with the 2 not yet named swans looks giant or else the swans are not a large as fully grown mute swans!

    I known mine are very friendly.... I have a female( from the pic with the chicken) that didn't like me when she was a baby but in the last 2 months decided that she loves me.... She is sitting on my back porch looking in my door window, not understanding why she can't come in and why I won't let her practice nest building on the door matt. [​IMG] She also follows me around the yard. I have Tango, who I call the tattle tale as he comes to me and tells me who is being bad. [​IMG] I have 2 sets of 2 year olds and one set of last seasons. The rooster , Chubaka is pretty big, but I do not believe they get as big as the Mutes.
