Several chicks hatch at New Hanover County Arboretum Tuesday


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — We first told you back last month that chicks were soon to hatch at the New Hanover County Arboretum and today they did.

Nine baby chicks have arrived with one more on the way. They have been in an incubator for about 20 days since the arboretum first received the eggs.

Dozens of people have stopped by to greet the new additions so far.

Staff says while they wish they could stay on the property they will go home with another employee and keep them as free range chickens.
