    Numbers and More

    I found some sentence in the online newspaper;

    The Chilean flamingo chicks started to hatch on July 18 with 13 more arriving since then.

    I don't know what the word 13 more means. What does it mean?

    Thank you very much!

    I don't know what the words 13 more means. What does it mean? It means that the number of chicks increased by 13. For example, if there were initially 3 chicks on the 18th, now there are 16 chicks.

    I take it to mean that some chicks started to hatch on July 18 and thereafter 13 more chicks hatched.

    Not a teacher.
