We were discussing it in the office, and nobody knows!

A group of penguins is called a colony, parcel, rookery or town.

Penguins nest in groups called rookeries. Some of these rookeries can have over a million birds! A group of penguins on land is called a waddle. A group of penguins in the water is called a raft. Sometimes the penguin chicks in a colony stay together in a large group called a creche.

Collective Noun For Penguins

According to my dictionary, the collective name for penguins is a "muster", "parcel" or "rookery".

Muster as in 'a formal gathering of troops', parcel as in 'something considered as a unit', and rookery as in 'colony' of birds.

There is no specific name for a group of penguins, however a group of penguins in the water is often called a raft because they "raft" together.

Similarly, there is no specific name for a male or female penguin or for a chick.

Rookery. I learned that from National Geographic! XD Or . . . a flock maybe.

I wanna say . . . gaggle, but thats not right! =D
