Flamingos are monogamous birds that lay just a single egg each year and if that egg is lost or damaged they do not lay a replacement.  Flamingo chicks are born grey or white and also with a straight bill which becomes curved after a few months.

The Flamingo is probably one of the most easily recognisable birds in the world.  The tropical wading birds have long legs, long curvy necks and, most distinctively, they are pink.  They are very social birds and live in colonies that can contain thousands of birds.  These large colonies help the flamingos avoid predators (we all know the saying “safety in numbers”) and using scarce nesting sites more efficiently.

Pobjoy Mint aims to dispatch all in stock items within 48 hours.
