Hi Jennifer

A hobble might work, but you need to get this cygnet to an experienced avian/waterfowl veterinarian immediately. This immediate intervention is critical in the survival of the cygnet as any delay could mean that the cygnet may never be able to walk or climb up and down banks to access water. Only assessment by an experienced veterinarian will determine if this cygnet can be helped. The Regal Swan
