Carolyn:I think itīs no problem for the chicks.
For the thermal isolation penguins do have a distinctive two to three centimeters thick layer of fat over which three overtight layers of short feathers are distributed . The air locked up in the feather layers also offers protection very effectively against warmth losses in the water.

Hi Gabi.....I was sort of joking with that comment. That being said your information is fantastic! Thank you. Now I can even envision how much protection they have.
I adore the last screen capture.
