The new arrivals are getting used to being handled.
Even penguins have to face the weighing scales sometimes.

Each year, the batches are named inventively and this year things are no different. The five new arrivals have all been named after curries!

Between them the chicks have a Massala, Peshwari, Tikki and more.

Once they've grown a bit, the new chicks will join their family in the Penguin Pool

The chicks just need to learn to feed for themselves, then they will join the 25 Humboldt penguins and four male Macaroni penguins in the main pool.
