    i have never pinoned a swan before but i have my ducks and geese. it is easy when they are a few days or hours old.These are the best times as the wing is so undeveloped it doesnt cause the bird alot of pain. and will heal withing a day or two due to fast growing.

    adults are much harder as in most cases would recommend taking it to the vet and putting it under while they clip the wing.
