Right now, the chick is covered in gray, white and black down feathers that are not waterproof. In about a month, the chick will shed its baby feathers and grow adult ones. The adult feathers also mean it’ll be time for the new chick to learn to swim.

The zoo will officially introduce the chick's name at an event Tuesday. Visit WPXI.com for more coverage.
