Juvenile Water Fowl

Before ordering juvenile fowl, please check with the Regulatory Agency in your state that controls wildlife management. You may need a permit. Please refer to the description only regarding male, female or straight run.

Due to state regulations:

  • Mute Swans cannot be shipped to the states of California, Maryland, New York or Michigan.
  • We are no longer shipping any Juvenile Fowl to the state of Minnesota.

Juvenile birds are shipped Wednesdays, unless otherwise noted, via USPS Express Mail. We will call you when we are ready to ship your order. Juveniles will eat a poultry layer crumble or a gamebird crumble. They are given scratch during transit.

PINIONED BIRDS — The right side is pinioned. Feel the end of the wing where the bone would be and compare with the left. They are easily pinioned at hatching, otherwise it is a surgical procedure.

WING TRIMMING — Juveniles that are not pinioned can have a wing trimmed. The trimmed feathers will grow back, though, so it will need to be done approximately four times a year.

Birds that are not wing trimmed or pinioned will fly away, and most likely not return. Keep in mind these are wild birds and pinioning or trimming the wing are sure ways to keep them from flying away.
