    Hello, I just had six babies hatch on December 6, 2012! They are adorable and have their wings clip. The swans are my Grandmother's, my name is Amanda and I do the internet for her.

    PM me.

    It is $500 a pair.

    Hello, just curious, what is "pinning" of the swans? And what is it's purpose? Thanks, Amy :)

    hello, pining the birds is clipping one wing when they are hatched. We do this so they can not fly away. Actually i think it is spelled like PINIONing. my bad for spelling error.

    It is fine. I took these to my vet to get pinionned. When he does this, the babies are put under anesthesia. Somehow with being so fluffy my vet said they just went up in flames.

    My Grandma says we will have some in the spring. I am not sure when they will hatch but I would say maybe for the New Year!
