Three little birds! Every little thing is gonna be all right for pekin robins being hand-reared by our bird keepers

Our specialist bird keepers are flying high after successfully hand-rearing a group of chirpy pekin robin chicks. These three songful siblings are finding their voices after some intensive care from the zoo’s experts.

Curator of birds Andrew Owen said:

“It’s incredibly important for our staff to develop their hand-rearing skills at the zoo as these can then readily be applied to highly threatened species in the wild, such as in places like Mauritius where we’ve hit the right note by successfully helping the likes of the Mauritius olive white-eye, Mauritius fody and Mauritius cuckoo shrike.”

Pekin robins are a small songbird, native to the Himalayas and China.

RARE OKAPI BORN!

Watch the wonderful moment our okapi Stuma gave birth.
An unusual African animal, the okapi is the closest-living relative to the giraffe.

With only 14 in zoos in the UK, our new arrival - a male called Usala - is an important boost to the breeding programme for the endangered animals.

We hope that being able to see Usala's birth will draw some much needed attention to this incredibly beautiful species.

One man. One tree stump. Several chainsaws!

Watch as a plain chunk of wood is transformed into a jaw-dropping piece of art featuring a family of Sulawesi macaques from the zoo.

The amazing sculpture will have a home in our new Islands zone - one of the most ambitious zoo developments ever in Europe - when it opens in July.

Take a virtual tour now and see some of what's in store on one of the six stunning islands, Sulawesi: http://www.chesterzoo.org/islands/explore/sulawesi

Say hello to our beautiful new onager, Romy!

Two-year-old Romy has moved to us from a zoo in Germany. She's a super important arrival and we hope she'll eventually go on to play a vital part in the international breeding programme for the critically endangered species.

Happy feet!

Our first Humboldt penguin chicks of 2015 have emerged from their eggs.

Weighing only 68g, baby chick Panay was the first of eight to hatch.

This year's arrivals are being named after the South East Asian development that visitors will enjoy later in the summer with the opening of our new #Islands development.

Although the penguins aren't moving to #Islands, keepers looking after the fluffy group chose a special way to mark what will be a momentous moment in our history.

I love Chester Zoo It's my favourite zoo and I enjoyed going to Chester zoo ever since I was a little boy. It's my dream to work at Chester zoo as a Zookeeper since I love animals. I am doing Animal Care to get the skills I need and I am self researching all I can about animals. I will work at Chester zoo as a Zookeeper Its my goal and I will achieve my goal.

I bookef online in the ssne day and saved £15. Good day out, couldn't fit seeing everything in, in 7.5 hours and we tried our hardest! All animals looked like they are cared for well and they do a lot of conservation in other countries too. Gift shop reasonable. Note monorail cost £12 for family all day travel, or can pay for single trips. also a boat ride is extra. Lots of animal indoor areas to go in if it rains. Indoor picnic area, but was packed as raining so sat on our picnic rug under a tree, did the job. Lots of picnic benches and toilets. Also some lovely gardens as well. Very flat but lots of walking, would need pushchair for little ones, pushchairs can go on monorail but not mobility scooters. Good play areas for the kids, quite a few cafes inc a pub. Coffee was £2, I took my own decaf teabags ( as they don't do decaf) and asked for cup of hot water which is free and used their milk and sugar. Slush puppy 2.50. Hot dog £3.50. A family of 4 can eat (sausage chips beans) for £20 after 3pm inc drinks, that was cheapest meal i could see in the restaurants. We took lots of food and kids drinks in a rucksack which saved quite a lot of money. Just needed longer to see everything!

Exceeded my expectations I was very reluctant to book as I thought a day at the zoo would be great for the kids but boring for me - but we all loved it We arrived at around 11am Monday 13th April 2015. Weather was a little chilly (12°) at start but brightened up later on and became lovely and warm (17°) There is plenty to see and plenty to keep you occupied for a good 5 hours. Tigers, lions, elephants, cheetah, jaguar, giraffe, monkeys, chimpanzees. All sorts. We took sandwiches, drinks, crisps, fruit etc with us and that was enjoyed and appreciated after around 2 hours. The home made ice cream being sold was lovely and creamy (not cheap at £2 per scoop!) but it was nice. The mono rail was £2 for adults £1.50 for kids and free for under 3s. That was actually really nice and we got a very good view of the whole zoo and many animals. The waterbus was unavailable due to 'bad weather' - weather was fine though! There is a children's activity park as well but we didn't even get round to visiting that as we were so busy looking at everything else. It was very well organised with plenty of staff around to assist with all aspects of the visit. The toilets were nice and clean too. We got a very warm welcome from the staff and a very warm goodbye too. Overall a very nice experience. It was lovely being able to see all the animals and nature. Something we see little of living in the city. The butterfly house viewing is an absolute must! We were 2 adults and 2 children under 6 years.

I definitely advice families with kids to visit this zoo. It's great fun. I have slight reservation about food service but overall very good

I was pleasantly surprised by my visit to Chester Zoo. I was fully expecting to dislike it as I have a general negative view on caging up animals, nether the less the animals appeared well looked after and it's quite spacious. I think I enjoyed the indoor tropical parts the most as everything is living around you as opposed to be fenced off, it was also really warm in there and a welcome break from a miserable November day. It helped ease my poor view of zoos overall and I learned a fair amount whilst walking around and reading the information displayed. I'd visit again if I go back to Chester.

You can tell the place has pride in what it does. The staff where very friendly, the pens where kept in a clean condition, and there was plenty to see. Was such a lovely day out. Wished we had more time to see everything!

Very disappointed not many animals out side what we did see was ok but having to look through small viewing points was awfull, what happened to all the open spaces where animals roam free. The Monkey enclosure was empty .Elephants enclosure work was being done..in all a very poor and expensive day out .
