You first need to determine the gender. If you get an opposite gendered mate, you may need to have a breeder's license and you will be responsible for any offspring. All offspring must be pinioned (rendered unable to fly) at 1-3 weeks of age.
Pinioning and sexing can be determined by an avian (bird) or exotic animal veterinarian experienced in swans and/or waterfowl.
Your best contact would be Jack Long at the Creekside Birds in Point Reyes Station, California. His contact information is:
