SeaWorld Orlando welcomes eight penguin chicks WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral

Dec 27, 2014 

In the last 10 days, eight penguin chicks hatched at SeaWorld Orlando's newest attraction – Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins.
The attraction features a colony of over 250 penguins from four species. Of the eight new chicks that hatched, two were Gentoo, four were Adelie and two were Rockhopper.
The chicks ranged in weight from two to four ounces – equivalent to about two to four slices of bread.
The chicks are currently being raised by their parents inside the attraction – with routine check-ups from the SeaWorld Orlando aviculture team.
