An early 'Happy Father's Day' two new gay dads in Germany!

Happy Fathers Day to a gay penguin couple in Germany's Bremerhaven Zoo.

This cute couple has been fostering a chick given to them by zoo handlers, after the egg was rejected several times by its biological parents.

The new gay dads are one of three same-sex couples in a colony of twenty at the zoo. Scientists originally tried to split-up the couple to encourage breeding, but the they continued to come back to each other.

Since hatching a few days ago, the chick is thriving! Congrats... and welcome to the world of gay parenthood!

And Tango makes Three. Great book. We looked for the penquins when we went to the zoo in NYC.
Great story.
