I have a pair of domestic white mute swans, I got from a 4 H auction, Should I clip their wings so they can’t fly off?

mated 6yr old white mute swans, they were owned by a 4-h child for showing.

    This is a common question, and one that every bird owner struggles with at some point. If you are planning on keeping your swans in a place where they might conceivably get free and fly away, then it is suggested you clip one wing, although you will have to watch, because it is possible for the wings to grow back. There are also a number of alternatives (you can find it in the second link), and you may want to talk to your vet, before you make a decision, and decide whether or not clipping is right for you.

    I hope this helped!
