Feed the kakī

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Head Aviculturist Liz Brown has been working with kakī/black stilts for 12 years. It’s been a bumper season for eggs—almost 200 with 40 hungry chicks already. These chicks are being fed on minced oxheart and wombaroo, and will be released into the wild at eight months of age.
