Are flamingos born pink?

    No they aren’t. Flamingoes are born with grey and white feathers. Over 1-3 years, they gradually develop their trademark pink hue.

    When born, chicks are covered with a coat of gray down feathers.  Also, their legs and bill are pink, but within the next week, they turn black, like you see for all mature flamingos.  Also, depending on the amount of carotenoid pigments in their diet, which is what’s found in carrots, flamingos can have different shades of pink in their coloring.  Some will be much brighter and possibly red or even orange in color, instead of just being pink.
