    so we went to the park today......we were walking and we turned around and all of a sudden that humongous thing appeared! [​IMG] [​IMG] it doesn't look big in this pic, but in real life....it was scary [​IMG] lol she/he kept following us and my friend started to run lmao! [​IMG] maybe she/he was hungry and was following us? [​IMG] so what is it (what breed) im not an expert in ducks, swans, or geese so idk what is that bird. When I went closer to take her/him some pics she/he made this weird screetching noise....was that a warning? Was she/he telling me to leave!? [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    here is when she/he was about to make the weird noise...

    well thanks everyone, now I know its not a chicken but it is a swan! [​IMG] well this was my reaction when I first saw it..... [​IMG] [​IMG] ....... "don't eat me! [​IMG] please!" and I think im not going to raise swans since they kinda scare me a bit [​IMG]

    i would love to have a couple of swans. last i checked they run about 800 bucks...maybe i can work on a hatch. what a great way to start out hatching eggs. i want a black one and a white one.

    It's a swan. If you think a mad goose is scary, don't upset a swan LOL!
