The Story of Heidi and Anderson

Meet Heidi and Anderson, the first chicks born at the June Keyes Penguin Habitat. This is their story, from egg to fully feathered juveniles.

In this blog you get a chance to meet Heidi and Anderson, Floyd and Roxy’s first chicks. They hatched this past June 19th and 25th, and are the first chicks born at the June Keyes Penguin Habitat.
