Watch as Associate Curator of Mammals and Birds Jennifer Odell gives us a glimpse at our new penguin chicks! The African penguin chicks, born nearly two weeks apart, are both very healthy and growing quickly.
They are now living together and are in the process of molting their down coat to gain their waterproof feathers, a process known as fledging. Once this process is complete, they will be ready for swimming practice!
Make sure to check back as we continue to share photos, videos and updates on our new friends! For more details on the birth of our penguin chicks, visit our Newsroom:
