Two fuzzy African Penguin chicks are now on exhibit at the Toronto Zoo.

The chicks were born on March 29 and April 1 to parents Colby and Greenbird — and they’re just the latest in this growing family, reports Zooborns. Another chick, Eldon, hatched on Jan. 28.  

The chicks join the zoo’s 12 adult penguins — including same-sex pals Buddy and Pedro, who made headlines in the fall when they were separated to be paired with females for mating season.

This is the Toronto Zoo's first African Penguin breeding season.
