What is the parental care of an emperor penguin?
Emperor penguin parents are very dedicated. After giving the single egg to the father, the mother leaves. The egg is on top of the father’s feet, and under his brood flap, which is a piece of loose skin, holding the egg to the father. The father Emperor penguin incubates the egg. Approximately 10 penguins stand in a huddle for 2-3 months in order to keep the egg as warm as possible. The father looses about half of his body weight, because he only eats a small portion of snow, while he is patiently waiting for the egg to hatch. The care of the baby all changes once the egg has hatched, their mothers comes back to take care of them. Although the father doesn’t want to give up its baby, it eventually does. The baby is moved to the feet of the father Emperor Penguin to the feet of the mother Emperor Penguin, who continues to care for it.

Not much. They are very similar to any other penguin, they swim ,eat fish . But they can also jump a bit.
you wrote the question wrong ,we don't know what you are trying to say .
In a huddle with all the other penguins so they can keep the egg warm.
The penguin pair travel many miles inland in the middle of winter and lay one egg, the female then gives that egg to the male to keep warm and walks back to the ocean to feed.… For several months the male endures the arctic winter with the egg, and in time the female returns, usually by this time the egg has just hatched and the female can begin feeding the chick with her full belly of fish, the male then takes his turn returning to the ocean to feed, and they repeat this until the ice has melted far enough that the chick is now much closer to the water, and feeding becomes much easier.
