Mute 6 wk. old swan not eating, strange cough, heavy breathing?
Date: 13 July 2014


We have 7, 6 wk. old Mute Swans. One ate this morning but did not eat this afternoon (regualr feeding time). Every once in awhile will make a funny cough sound. Can see its sides going in and out when breathing.

Can you tell me what the problem might be?

Thank You
