SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Zoo has a few new residents. Four flamingo chicks have hatched over the last week.

They range in age from one to eight days old. The chicks are born with gray down feathers, and are about the size of a tennis ball.

They stay close to a parent for the first week or so before going off to explore their surroundings.

Six more hatchlings are expected in the next few weeks.
