  11:43 AM — Cygnet Colors
When I was a kid I was told that the color (gray or white) of mute swan cygnets (chicks) depended upon their sex. Recently I asked another blogger who'd taken a picture of some cygnets if he knew about this, and he said he didn't think there was any relationship. So I did some Google digging to see what I could find.

Wikipedia said they were all gray, which is patently not true, so I fixed it and included the two above links. I'm not really finding anything else good and concrete...

Good on you for doing a bit of research and then passing it on. It is going to make a difference to someone somewhere :-)
