Female swan died before eggs hatched
By:Robert
Date: 20 April 2015

We have a few mute swans on our private ponds. One particular male and female breed every year and she lays her eggs. Didn't have any take last year maybe due to a late frost but this year we thought she might be able to pull it out. Well she died somehow over the weekend and the eggs havnt hatched yet. The male still gards the nest but is there anything we can do for the eggs? We do not have an incubator but we have heat lamps. Or will he maybe take care of them? They are approximately 2-4 week old eggs.
