Mixing swan species
Date: 21 February 2015

I have a home in eastern Washington State with a private 9 acre pond. I keep heritage breed domestic ducks and about 7 Emden geese.

I have always loved swans. Can I introduce juvenile or breeding pairs of trumpeter swans and a black swan pair as well? If done out of breeding season, are they likely to tolerate and ignore each other? Will they need separate places to "winter" as the lake does freeze.
