Five rare Easter eggs hatch on Easter Sunday
On Easter Sunday, five critically endangered Edward’s Pheasant chicks hatched. Our female pheasant had been incubating the eggs for several weeks in a quiet corner of our rainforest glasshouses.
The adult birds are being very good parents and are defending their chicks. All visitors are being asked to give the family space and not come between the parents and their chicks, as the parents may attack if they feel threatened.
Living Rainforest staff are monitoring the situation and reserve the right to take the animals off show if required. The birds are part of international breeding programme which is coordinated from a centre in France.
