The Milwaukee County Zoo welcomed two healthy, fuzzy chicks to the world, it announced this week.

Two Gentoo penguin chicks were born a few weeks ago, announced by the Zoo on Wednesday on its Facebook page.

They are off exhibit for the time being until their adult feathers come in.

And the young-ones are in good hands (or flippers). Both sets of parents have raised chicks before.
