CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

An endangered foster penguin chick at Brookfield Zoo is doing very well thanks to attentive care from his foster parents at the Brookfield Zoo.

The penguin egg hatched in February at the Columbus Zoo, but the parents had difficulties incubating the egg due to the Arctic blast that swept through Ohio.

The egg was brought to the Brookfield Zoo and given to foster penguin parents to continue the incubation process. The parents were chosen because they have successfully raised chicks before and they had their own infertile egg.
