Auckland Zoo said on Thursday, January 25, a flamingo chick born to its hand-raised flock was thriving after its birth earlier that month. The zoo said the chick was the first to be born without assistance and in front of visitors, and would also be the first to be raised by the previously hand-raised flock, which was carefully brought up by zookeepers. According to its keeper, the grey newcomer would not develop the pink plumage of its parents for another few years. Credit: Auckland Zoo via Storyful
