They might look a little jelly legged at the moment, but these are the latest additions to the flamingo flock at Chester Zoo .
A ‘successful’ breeding season has seen 23 chicks hatched into the group.
But it will be six months before the little white ones start to develop their striking pink feathers.
The last of the fluffy new arrivals emerged from its egg on July 5, just under a month after the first.
Assistant manager of the bird team Mark Vercoe said: “It’s been a really successful breeding season for the flamingos and we’re delighted with all of the new chicks.
“They look like fluffy cotton wool balls with little wobbly legs at the moment and it’ll be several months until their pink feathers start to show.
“For a few days after hatching the youngsters tend to stay really close to their parents but they soon grow in confidence and some have already started to wade in the water around their island independently.”
Each chick hatched to a different female as flamingos are monogamous birds and only lay a single egg each year.
The new arrivals are split between 11 Chilean and 12 Caribbean flamingos, the former are paler in colour compared to their cousins.
This has brought the numbers of each breed colony at Chester Zoo to more than 100.
Protecting Chilean flamingo numbers is vital as their eggs have long been a target of poachers in the wild and their habitat has become increasingly under threat.
