Pukaha is very proud to be celebrating the 100th chick to be hatched at the National Wildlife Centre since it began participating in the national Operation Nest Egg programme in September 2005.
MB100 hatched on Friday 17 March in the nursery and staff will be celebrating with the community from March 26 to April 3. MB100 will remain in the brooder off display until March 26 when it will have its initial 12 noon feed. This is to allow it time to absorb its yolk from the hatch. It will be fed in the nursery daily at 12 noon from March 26 to Monday 3 April.
