    Try looking really close to the waters edge. Ducks and geese usually nest like in the cat tails and the tall grass that is really close to the water. Or when they hatch there Swanlings(I have no idea what a baby swan is called,lol)just snatch them and stick them in your brooder,lol

    :eek: Whoa! $126 for one egg? Talk about being nervous about shipping and incubating!
    They have an exotic animal sale in Mt. Hope, Ohio in the spring and fall and they auction off swans for a couple of hours there. I don't have a pond so during the swan part of the auction I usually use that time to get something to eat and whatnot. So, I'm not sure on the prices, but I do know they are over $200 a swan.

    I know of a guy selling swan eggs for $50.00, dont know if he has any left or not. I just emailed him, I'll see if he has any left. Email me and I'll let you know if he has any or not, if he gets back to me...........

    The Gamebird and Conservationist's Gazette has lot of ads in the back for swans and many other exotic fowl.
    Good Luck- they are expensive!
