    Sydney's gay male pairing of Gentoos, Sphen and Magic, hatched their baby last week and are being great dads! The aquarium only just made the announcement, so they've succeeded in raising the chick for over a week now.

    Male couples rarely get to raise chicks, for obvious reasons. In this case, another pairing had two eggs so one was taken and given to them to care for.
