Hatching When born the chinstrap penguins are gray. It takes approximately 15 – 33 days for the babies to hatch. The babies huddle together as a group when days old as they have no feathers to keep them warm. Until they are 20 – 30 days old they keep to the nest. BackBack
Adaptation The chinstrap penguins have plenty of feathers which have adapted over time to fit with their habitat. Their beaks have also adapted so they are very good for picking up their food quickly in the cold sea. BackBack
More adaptation They have blubber which helps them to insulate the cold. Also they have flippers to speed them up in the water. The blood vessels in their flippers and legs have evolved to help to preserve heat. To help to keep them dry they have tightly packed feathers. Back
