2nd Humboldt penguin hatched at SEA LIFE!

2 kuikens

On Wednesday 4th of May a second penguin chick has hatched. It is the second chick for mother Janneke and father Jip.

The chick weighed just 85 grams at birth (15 grams less than his/hers brother or sister) but already has put on 28 grams of weight in the first two days. The parents will now have two chicks to feed , so they will get extra food.

The penguin babies are not yet visible to the public, it can take 2 months before the chick gets out of the nest.

Penguin born!

Pinguin kuiken

After more than 30 days the moment has arrived - a Humboldt penguin chick has hatched. The happy parents are the 8-year-old penguin Janneke and father Jip. It is the first penguin chick to be born in SEA LIFE Scheveningen.

Both penguins had kept watch on the eggs and only came out to get some food, says Marjolein Kemna, Displays Curator.

The chick is after its birth immediately weighed and checked. It weighs 113 grams. The penguin parents get fed 3 times a day in order to feed their little baby. There are a total of four eggs laid by two penguin couples so we hope to have more babies this month.

The penguin chick is not yet visible to the public, it can take 2 months before the chick gets out of the nest. However, in the next few days we will place a webcam in the nest box, so the chick will be visible on a big screen in SEA LIFE.
