Another pair of male penguins adopts egg

This time, in Berlin Zoo. Skipper and Ping had been trying for months to incubate rocks or anything remotely similar to an egg but now they got themselves a real egg! YAAAYYYY for Ping and Skipper!

I have had male cockatiels steal and adopt chicks. Impy, without a mate, tried to claim an egg but could not get it under him.

Yes, that's because cockatiel pairs share the parental duties of feeding babies AND incubating the eggs.
