penguinA couple of gay penguins have been given a chick by zookeepers in China.


The baby penguin was one of twins, but they were been separated to give them the best chance of survival.

The gay penguins at Harbin Polar Land in northern China were often caught stealing eggs during the hatching season.

In the wild male penguins share the parental duties with the females, so the couple will be naturally suited to raising chicks.

Last month another couple of gay penguins hit the news when they were separated in Toronto Zoo so they could breed with females.

In 2004 two gay penguins at New York’s Central Park Zoo were given an egg to hatch.

“And Tango Makes Three” is a bestselling children’s book about the chick and its parents.
