A kiwi chick has hatched for Otanewainuku Kiwi Trust and she needs a name.

The cute 4-month-old baby North Island Brown Kiwi is due to be moved from Kiwi Encounter to the Warrenheip Creche and the trust is asking for name submissions for the wee bird.

Whoever comes up with the winning name will have the chance to meet the kiwi with four friends at one of her routine health checks.

To enter, like the Otanewainuku Kiwi Trust Facebook page and comment on the post of the kiwi with the name you think would suit.
