If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Yellow-eyed Penguin. Unlike other penguin species, the Yellow-eyed Penguin is relatively solitary. They do not breed in colonies. Both parents incubate the eggs for about 43 days and one of the adults will remain with the growing chicks constantly until they are about six weeks old.
