(WICHITA, Kan.) — The Sedgwick County Zoo is showing off four new babies. The Humboldt Penguin chicks were born about six weeks ago.
While they spend most of their time with their mom and dad, zookeepers check on them frequently, weighing them once a week.
The chicks are covered with soft gray downy feathers. They will stay inside their nest boxes until their adult feathers grow in.
You can see the baby penguins now through the Nest Boxes at the exhibit.
The four babies bring the total number of Humboldt Penguins at the zoo to 25.
