We have a mated pair of Swans that have raised a baby each spring. They have let the one born in 98 stay with them and have just run the one born in 99 off, it is in a nearby pond. We would love any info on how much space they need,things we can feed them as the kids love to. Also any sugestions on other places to call or e-mail Is it wise or possible to take the eggs and encubate them, as they lay 5-6 and something is getting most of the babies shortly after they hatch.

I don't have any immediate answers, but here is a good place, with lots of links, to start looking:
