Back to Crane #8-13's Bio Page

One Month Old
Here's crane chick #8 at one month of age at Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Maryland.
Chicks can grow over an inch a day in their first weeks of life. They learn how to eat by watching a puppet that looks like a crane. Do you see the puppet head in the crane feeder?
