KBC Offline Quiz October 4: What are newborn penguins known as? 





Answer: Nestlings

Newborn baby penguins are known as "Nestlings". Other words used for describing newborn penguins are "chicks" or "hatchling." 

Baby penguins assemble groups called crèches (from French). The purpose of these groups is to protect them easily from predators and keep warm in extreme temperature conditions while their parents are away searching for food. New born baby nestlings have very soft and fluffy feather designed to keep them warm during hard cold weather. Baby penguins get very loud and vocal when they are hungry. Once they reach the fledging state they start going for hunting with their parents.
