Mr and Mrs 91
Sometimes our yellow-eyed penguin pairs get themselves a little skinny and both of the pair end up in rehab. This is what happened with these two - first we picked her up (on the left) and then a week later or so we picked him up. Once they had settled and learnt how to eat out of the hand we put them together - and they sang and sang and sang (either that or they were comparing notes as to how they came to be there). We do worry to separate pairs when one of them needs a top up during the moult and we try to have them apart for as little time as possible so not to endanger their pair bond. Sometimes there is no need to worry - these two were quite happy together in rehab!!
