According to a post on the Toronto Zoo Facebook page, the chicks hatched on February 12, 15, 27 and March 4, respectively. Three of them are females and the fourth is a male. They haven't been named yet.
The zoo says that of the 18 penguin species, African penguins are among the most endangered in the world.
Starting on April 14, you'll be able to see the penguins in the indoor viewing area from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. daily.
