Unfortunately, only 8-10 chicks survived beyond this period due to heavy rains (>10.5 inches) in May. 50% of broods survived to two weeks of age in the wild in FY 15 with about 6 chicks surviving to 6-weeks of age. Poor survival was once again attributed to heavy rains in May and June (~22 inches). Not Started Labor type not yet selected Work type not yet selected
