2 females with one male?
Date: 23 June 2016

Hi, I have a pinioned female mute swan and a female (I think) mute swan from a rescue who's wings are not clipped. This one flew away 3 months ago so I now am raising a male (I think) pinioned cygnet for the pinioned female. Well, wouldn't you know, the other swan flew back in this week.

So, my question is, once the cygnet is old enough to be on the pond, can he peacefully live with 2 females or will one leave over territory dispute? Since only one female can fly the others would have to leave on foot, which would be horrible.
