A few up-to-date images of our four latest Penguin chicks, taken last evening – aged a few days old - just before they left on their journey to Longleat.  The youngsters are transported in an incubator to ensure they’re kept warm.  We’re pleased that all are extremely healthy, eating well and growing almost as you look at them.  Amazingly, in 3-4 months time they’ll be the same size as their parents!  We wish them all the luck in the world as they grow into their new lives at Longleat Safari Park, Wiltshire.
