We have made it! Actually - the chicks have made it over the 3 week line. Even our youngest yellow-eyed penguin chicks are now 3 weeks old and that usually means that they are going to be ok and will fledge. We can relax a little and enjoy the little balls of fluff that are getting more adventurous and explore more outside their nest boxes.
Here dad has returned home from fishing and fed the chicks. He is now trying to do his duty of watching over them while not feeling to harassed for more food.
Yes, it is time to enjoy the chicks as they grow big and strong.
