Baby penguins are called chicks. The Emperor Penguin chicks are born completely covered with gray plumage, which they lost as they grow to get the counter shade black and white plumage which most of us know. Baby penguins have different sizes and physical characteristics depending on the species and their natural habitat.

Baby penguins born completely covered with gray, white or brown plumage, which changes as they grow to get the counter shade black and white plumage which most of us know. They switch to the typical adult plumage when they are about one year old. Not all penguin chicks look the same. They have different sizes and plumage color depending on the species.
