Except for the Australian Black, swans naturally love the cold water. Swans ship free to the airport of your choice, arriving the same day; they are not available for pickup. Swans are pinioned and sold as male and female pairs only. Juvenile swans are 1-2 years of age; breeder swans are 3+ years. Learn more about keeping swans and beautifying your pond today. Before purchasing any exotic breeds, contact your State Fish and Wildlife Department for information on permits or restrictions in your area.
