Watch: Zookeeper feeds king penguin chick by hand

Zookeepers at the Kansas City Zoo are busy making fish "milkshakes" to feed a king penguin chick that hatched in an incubator Nov. 8, 2017, at the zoological park.

Using a syringe filled with the liquid fish formula, zookeepers gather five times a day to hand-feed the tiny chick, who weighs about 280 grams.
