    I suppose it's just the angle and the light, but a few of these penguins look like they have no black feathers at all! (left of center)

    Yes, good eye. The comments below yours identify it the same way. Leucistic birds have lighter than usual markings, but there is room for much variation within that category. 😉

    We can't really say much about precise colouration due to the camera settings overemphasizing the white of the chicks.
