Kiwis the fruit are delicious, but we think Kiwi the bird is even better!!
A little cutie baby Kiwi was born at the Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Center in New Zealand.
The baby chick is now 11 days old, but only 6 in the pictures!
Awwww! The little baybeeeee!
Once the little guy strengthens up and gains some weight (hopefully reaching 2.6 pounds) he'll be released into the Pukaha Mount Bruce reserve.
With some real weight on him, he'll have the best chance of surviving in the wild, able to defend against rats, stoats and ferrets.
He's just the first of many too. The Wildlife Center plans on hatching up to 20 more chicks!!
That's amazing! Let's hope they absolutely cover New Zealand in Kiwis! (The birds, not the nickname for New Zealanders! LOLz!)
