As devoted kiwi cam watchers may already know, a second kiwi chick hatched yesterday, March 7! At 4:15 a.m. that morning, the cam still showed a pipping egg. By the time keepers arrived just before 6 a.m. they found a peeping kiwi chick just picking off the last pieces of egg shell.
This egg was laid in late December. Geneticists will determine the chick's sex in the next week.
