Gay vulture dads hatch chick
A gay vulture couple has hatched a baby chick at a Dutch zoo, marking a momentous milestone for the lovebirds that had been trying to start a family for months, their caretaker said Thursday. The pair of male griffon vultures at the Artis zoo in Amsterdam recently welcomed a chick after taking in an abandoned egg in their aviary unit, zookeeper Job van Tol told TIME. The dads, together for years, had been mating and started building nests in January. However, neither could produce an egg; only female vultures can do that. The egg was likely unclaimed by a female griffon vulture that had not yet bonded with a partner, van Tol said. The zookeepers put the egg in their nest and watched in awe as the two males took turns keeping it warm.
