Those little cuties are certainly getting about
Our first chick meme!
Chicks are investigating their environment.
Curling up to mom, but too big to fit anymore.
Spread eagle and sound asleep
Ha! A little meme I think. :-)
Everyone is asleep. Shhhh.
Cooling off, learning to be a penguin
See the crop on that chick. Now that's a well fed bird. Of course, he's the one without a sibling so he gets all the food.
They're simply adorable.
And on the other side...

There were just so many images I couldn't stand to omit posting that I made gifs out of them so you can see how fast they're growing. At the last gif, the chicks are already venturing out from their parents and a sort of loose creche has formed. A creche is like a nursery for chicks that is supervised by a few adults. This allows the rest of the rookery inhabitants to freely fish for food.
This one is just super adorable!
And on the other side of the rookery... look at the size of those chicks!
