Manlius (WSYR-TV) – Manny and Faye, the swans who call the Manlius Swan Pond home, had two eggs hatch on Monday.

Central New Yorkers weren't able to take a look at the newly hatched cygnets until Wednesday. however.

Ornithologist Michael Bean donated Manny and Faye to the village.

He told NewsChannel 9 that he wasn't sure when the two other eggs might hatch.



There has been increased attention on the swans after eggs that Faye laid last year were destroyed.

Ross Leone admitted he smashed the eggs. He was sentenced to a month's worth of weekends in jail, ordered to pay restitution, and will be on probation for three years.

Soon after, Faye laid new eggs that hatched last summer.
