Flight Feathers

The Pen has finally grown her new flight feathers and the Cob has lost his. The cygnets too are starting to grow their first flight feathers, and should be getting taught to fly by the Pen in about 3 weeks time. It's still too early to tell how many of the cygnets are male and female, but at this stage it appears at least 5 males out of the 8.

The pic of the cygnet with outstretched wings shows the flight feathers starting to appear.
