Egg of Livingstone's Turaco

Today we focus on an egg that was laid in the Paradise Hall.
This egg, somewhat smaller than ordinary hen's egg, was laid by Livingstone's Turaco.

It is set in the incubator for artificial incubation. The incubator had been occupied by eggs of Decoy Ducks until recently, but now only two eggs, the one in this picture and another one that was laid soon after this picture was taken, monopolize the machine.

This is the alleged mother of the eggs among Livingstone's Turaco. It is similar in appearance to Guinea Turaco, but the top of its crest is white. That makes it more fashionable and more popular among visitors than Guinea Turaco.

And we've just started exhibiting a baby Guinea Turaco at the Paradise Hall. The baby learn how to eat food from people's hands by watching behaviour of adult birds.

Perhaps because it has been reared by the bird staff, the baby is rather tame and comes close to human who doesn't have any food. Hopefully it'll be a popular bird in the Hall. We are looking forward to the day when the baby is put out of the cage.
