For quite some time I have wanted to get a swan or two. I have never had them and never been around them. I have done a little research on them. (Nothing extensive as I still have to convince the hubby ) My mom told me that they are mean. I just figure that they are like any other bird, some can be mean... Here I sit, open to any and all advice as I continue to consider whether or not I want to invest in one. Thanks!
