Johno, our superhero kiwi in the Kaweka Forest Park, produced a kiwi chick and an egg (subsequently incubated at Westshore) in his first clutch of the 2022-23 season which is from June to March. Although the north island brown kiwi can lay eggs in any month.
The chick, Johno Q, was released into the kiwi crèche under the watchful gaze of three of the Macdonald clan: Grace, Belle and Charlie meeting their first kiwi.
Johno subsequently produced two more kiwi chicks on his second clutch of the season.
