New Flamingos At Caldwell Zoo

Caldwell Zoo is welcoming some new, feathered friends to a growing exhibit.

Seven baby Chilean flamingos are the newest addition, bringing the zoo's total number of flamingos on display to 59.

The chicks started hatching in late October, and the last one was hatched in early December. The flamingos came a little late this year. The breeding process was delayed because of the drought.

All of the birds had to be hand raised by zoo employees, which gave them lots of bonding time.
