    I work with a local bird rescue group and we recently had 7 adult mute swans brought in. We have had them examined by a certified avian vet and they are ready to be placed in new homes. They are well socialized with humans. We know there are two established pairs in the group, but are unsure of the genders of the others.

    Adoption fee is $400 each.
    Shipping is approximately $130 ($30 for box and another $100 for shipping)
    Will obtain a health certificate for an additional $50, upon request

    Please pm me or call Richard at (801) 688-6911 for more information.

    UPDATE: Thanks to wonderful people adopting our swans (including a BYC member) we only have 2 left!! We have one male/one female who live together but are not an established pair. I sure would love to find another BYC member to adopt them!

    Are they pinioned? I wouldn't pay for anything that may just fly away when I let it out. And DNA'd for sex?
    I have a pinioned female looking for a mate

    We have a few that are pinioned and believe one is a solo male. We have not had them dna sexed as we are a non profit rescue and the board has not yet authorized payments for sexing. But we make arrangements to have that done, if necessary.

    We have found homes for three of the swans, but we still have two establish pairs available for adoption!

    I believe there is one pair left. They are $800, plus shipping if you are not local. The rescue does not sell hatching eggs of any kind.
