Hatch Year 2006 Answer

1. Pilot Chris is very proud that the first wild egg hatched took her first flight under his plane's wing. That's probably why she's his favorite chick. Which chick (from cohort 1, the oldest eight)?



2. This chick (from cohort 2, the middle five) was always looking to the swamp and ignoring the trike (the ultralight plane)—until it learned to fly. Now it is a very good flier and follower of the trike.


3. Which chick (from cohort 2, the middle five) held back by the gate until Lauries' puppet helped her feel safer to come nearer the gate and join the group?

4. At health checks this chick (from cohort 1) was the only one who came right back, happy to eat the treats while the other birds pecked at the new radio transmitters on their legs.
