I am going to be getting a pair of black swans this spring but wanted to research as much as possible beforehand. First things first, what would be the best book(s) to buy with valuble swan info? I am getting them at just a few weeks old, so what is the best thing to feed them at this age? I raise ducks and know that medicated feed is harmful to them. If there is anything like this that I should know about swans, please inform me! Until they get bigger, I plan to keep them in a coop with a small run. What would be the best thing to use as a temporary pond for them? Or don't they need one right away? I plan to fence in their pond to keep predators out. Does anyone have pictures of their pond areas (just for ideas)? What else can I feed them other than pelleted feed? (I feed my ducks fresh/leftover veggies and fruit. I just need to know if there is anything along those lines that can be harmful to swans). Also, what do they eat as adults? And how much? I don't really have a limited budget, but it would be nice to know approximately how much they eat as adults just so I can figure out how much I will need to get for them and how often. Thanks so much! I look forward to the responses! And feel free to add in anything else you feel I should know!
