This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

SEATTLE — One of the chicks hatched just Tuesday — the two others hatched earlier this month.

On Friday, we got to see them while they were out and about in their special outdoor area, where they’re able to walk and strengthen their legs.

In about 30 days or so, the chicks will join the rest of their kin in the flamingo exhibit.

As for their color, the chicks won’t get their famous flamingo pink feathers until their 2 or 3 years old.
