Rockhopper Penguin Chicks on Display at the Henry Doorly Zoo

By Marcus Cooper. CREATED Feb 27, 2014

OMAHA - The Henry Doorly Zoo rolled out the welcome mat for five new additions.

The Rockhopper Penguin chick went on display Thursday.

The birds will spend some time in the playpen at the Penguin Display Area so they can get used to all the other penguins and have more time to let their feathers come in.

The little chicks hatched between December 23 and December 27, 2013.

They currently weigh from 4.25 pounds to 4.76 pounds and could weigh up to 5.5 pounds when they reach adulthood.
