Hi Pia

We are in agreement with you. If the swan has a limp, but can still get around, is eating and has a mate, we would leave it alone. If it gets to the point where movement is so difficult that it cannot feed and is susceptible to predators, then you must seek assistance. If it can still walk, it is more likely a soft tissue injury, i.e., strain, sprain rather than break. The Regal Swan
