Staff members kept watch for hours to make sure the hatchling pulled through.
The chick went right into a warm brooder so the team can monitor its health over the next few days.
Zoo officials say the next step is to unite the chick with its parents.
The L.A. Zoo has been home to California condors since 1967.
