Penguins actually do have feathers but the adult ones have highly specialized feathers that allow them to swim efficiently and stay warm in the wet environment. However baby penguins are born with more traditional looking feathers and are called chicks. They live in groups called nurseries while the adult penguins hunt for food. But as they get older the baby penguins they shed their baby feathers in a process called molting. They grow their shiny highly specialized feathers when mature into adulthood, allowing them to thrive in the ocean so they can hunt for fish. There are different species of penguins from the commonly recognized The King to the Rockhopper Penguins. The most different looking are the Little Blue or Fairy Penguin that live on the shores of Australia and New Zealand.
