Number of swans on one pond
Date: 2 November 2016

Hi there,
We have several mute swans living on our property in NZ.
Each year the swans produce approx 7 cygnets.
They seem to pair up, but each year we have had to move them on into seperate waterways etc as they tend to fight once they mature.
We have recently gifted a male/female pair to a man to put on his large body of water (300m x 100m). And he has asked that we send him some more.
How many pairs (male/female) could live happily on one body of water that size without them getting into issues and possibly killing each other.
Any advice on multiple pairs on one body of water would be great.
