    They all became a blur to me, hard to define where one chick started and another finished....

    @AvastMH Lucy? (I have missed something)

    Ah, I searched a bit and got it. Although there was no post with the naming process among the search results 😦 I disagree with the red circle

    though, I think there are dark parts visible on that penguin. Lucy is white with very very pale grey head/back feathers. This one looks like a regular chick.

    Thanks for looking at this one everybody. I think that you are right - not Lucy this time around. I hope we do get to

    see a fully grown leucistic penguin at some time 😃

    We saw the leucistic chinstrap with adult plumage last year, it must be in my collection somewhere 😃

    Oh! I'm sorry I missed it - if you get a minute to find it Yshish that would be wonderful 😃

    Ah, you actually saw the one I meant: APZ0003acn but I forgot it wasn't completely leucistic since it had some grey feathers on back. Cool anyway 😃

    Unlike albinism, there are many ways a leucistic tendency is expressed.
