Flaming Head - What a Beautiful Natural Pink Colour
Flamingos usually lay just one large egg. It takes about a month for the chick to incubate. The chick's mother and father each take turns to incubate the egg. Just before they hatch the chick starts squawking, this is the signal for the parents to help by breaking the egg from the outside.
After about a week of feeding from its parents, the flamingo chick looks funny, but it's ready to walk - see funny flamingo picture below. The young flamingo develops quickly and can swim before it leaves the nest, which is typically about a week after hatching.

Lovely Flamingo Brooch and Charm
It seems that the plural of flamingo, is usually spelt as flamingos, however, flamingoes is also deemed to be correct. Incidentally, the brooch is another tricky word to spell. This is because the noun brooch (above) is frequently confused with the verb to broach (a subject).

Flamingos pictured at Colchester Zoo, Essex, England, have been given the chance to preen after a number of full length mirrors were placed in their enclosure. The move isn't to allow the birds to admire their reflection but is part of an attempt to encourage them to breed! Flamingo photo: Jeremy Durkin/Rex.

An escaped flamingo which has been flying free for nearly five months has turned up at nature reserves in Norfolk and Suffolk in England.
The female bird, named Fiona, landed at the RSPB reserve at Strumpshaw Fen, near Norwich, on Wednesday morning. The escapee from a zoo in Hampshire then turned up at RSPB Minsmere on the Suffolk coast on Thursday morning.
She has also been spotted in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Berkshire in recent weeks. Fiona visited RSPB Titchwell Marsh, near Hunstanton, early in April 2011 and has also been spotted at its Ouse Washes reserve in Cambridgeshire. Ben Lewis, whose photo is below, a warden at Strumpshaw Fen, said he initially thought the sighting of Fiona at the reserve was a joke. 'But when I rushed over to our tower hide it was there in full view, mingling with the geese, paddling in the water and flying over the reed beds,' he said.
A numbered ring on the flamingo's leg identified her as Fiona - a greater flamingo, a species native to parts of Africa, southern Asia and southern Europe. She escaped from Marwell Wildlife, near Winchester, Hampshire, England in 2010.
