Largest Colony of Greater Flamingos in North America Welcomes Two New Additions, at San Diego Zoo Safari Park
Escondido, California - Keepers from the bird department at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park readied their processing kits as they prepared to perform health exams on the two newest chicks in the greater flamingo flock. The chicks both hatched July 12 were weighed, had a blood sample taken to determine their sex and received a tiny microchip for identification purposes. Keepers were also tasked with checking on the progress of laid eggs in various stages of the hatching process—and they discovered one egg had pipped, meaning the chick made its first hole in the shell to start breaking out of the egg.
