Feathered Father’s Lonely Vigil

22nd May 2013 at 9:18 am

Father's Day

As many of our guests know we had a pair of black swans on the property. The pair has called the farm home for many years now.

Shortly after laying her latest three eggs, our Mother Black Swan was found to have died of unknown causes.

The Father, after losing his mate, has taken up the responsibility of protecting and keeping the unhatched eggs warm. The incubation period normally takes around 35 days.

Over the next month we will be keeping a watchful eye over dad to see his attempt and progress with the eggs.  Feel free to come past and cheer on our very dedicated father in his attempt to get these eggs hatched.
