I'll be honest: It was a little nerve-wracking. We worked so hard to raise these chicks and make sure that they would integrate with the rest of the colony. And they did! But, like my colleague Susan Cardillo—the zoo's assistant curator—says here, the day we watched the chicks go out on exhibit was a lot like sending the kids off to their first day of school.
I'm handing the mic over to Sue for this video post so she can describe that landmark morning.
