A newborn Inca tern chick has been getting cozy, not with its mother, but with a household feather duster. Zookeepers decided to hand-rear the baby, temporarily named Patches, in an incubator to keep it safe from the larger species in the Penguinarium exhibit. "The feather duster provides some security and comfort for the chick, which has been eating well and is growing quickly," zookeepers told InsideEdition.com.
