I remember visiting the San Diego Zoo many times as a child. I grew up in San Diego, so the zoo was a frequent destination especially when visitors arrived. It’s an amazing zoo. I was very spoiled to have access to it anytime I wanted. Though with all the amazing animals and exhibits, I fondly remember the chicks in the petting zoo. A hundred or so chicks peeping around a heat lamp in fresh wood shavings waiting for children to arrive to hop on their hand. Little chicks are very cute and gentle. I heard the peeping where our brooding hen sits this morning and knew the little ones had arrived. Three so far, we’ll see if the other three peck out. She’s a proud mama.
