    What could possibly be wrong with a male mute swan that has a yellow beak? He is two years old this spring. I know that it is supposed to be orange. He was just transported yesterday ,and I was wondering if the trauma of relocating caused this, or if something else could be going on that would take some time to change the color. I have given him electrolites and vitamins. Just looking for more opinions. Thanks in advance for you time.

    Are you sure he is a mute and now a whooper or a bewick, they do look very similar, any chance of a pic? [​IMG]
