Hi Phil:
Incubation is primarily conducted by the female, but this totally depends on the individual male swan and/or the species. In any case, the female will take an approximate 30 minute break every so often to bathe, feed and preen. The female will cover the eggs with nesting material and the male will either sit on or near the eggs. The Regal Swan
