Best Answer

They raise their young by putting the egg under the flaps of their skin in between their legs. The male penguin uaually take care of the egg until it is hatched. When a mothers egg is lost or stolen the male penguin steals another penguins egg from their nest. They do this so they don't really feel bad for losing their young.
