Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium welcomes their new Rockhopper penguin born on June 9th.

The aquarium announced that the Rockhopper chick hatched on June 9, when it weighed about 2 ounces, and has been behind the scenes for the past couple of weeks.  Aquarium officials report the chick is growing steadily and has soft down-like plumage. Its parents, Edward and Annie, both take a role in feedings.

The aquarium’s penguin experts have been closely monitoring the hatchling, but they don’t yet know whether it’s male or female. Within the next few months the chick will begin moving around on its own. Aquarium officials say it’s difficult to spot, but is on view.  So far a name has not been chosen.
