It's that time of year when we weigh our yellow-eyed penguin chicks to see how the parents are doing and some of them come up a little short. That's ok though as in these two cases:
Bequette and her mate have done very well raising their chick to this age but the chick was not quite fat enough and it was probably enough for a young sweet 2-year old female breeding for the first time. So here the chick is in rehab with her mate from next door: Morgan was raising a couple of chicks but one was a little on the 'not quite fat enough' side. The chicks know each other because they were neighbours and they hung out together while waiting for their parents to come home from fishing. So we put them together in their wee pen.
Next skill to master: how to eat from the hand.
