I had to look up the word for baby swan. It’s cygnet.

What a beautiful word.

A mama swan is a pen. A daddy swan is a cobbe

Five cygnets and a pen.

These fuzzy little cygnets are the latest additions to the animal farm my dad helps manage.

They look so peaceful I wish I could be there right now.

What are your favorite baby animals?

  1. Hi Crystal! Beautiful photo! The ducks on our lake just had some fuzzy babies but I’m pretty sure they’re just called ducklings 🙂

    • Too cute! Near the office where I work, there are tons of Canada geese and beautiful mallard ducks. Occasionally, I will see a mama goose or duck leading her chicks precariously across the busy road. I get so nervous for them!

  2. Congratulations on the Collies Choice Award!

  3. What a cute picture.

    Whee like baby guinea pigs the most. But maybe we are biased . . . ?!
