Baby Flamingo - A Caribbean flamingo chick's feathers are mostly white. The typical flamingo pink color comes from their food and collects in their feathers as they grow up. In the wild, they get color from shrimp and krill, but at the zoo, they put the same pigment into their food pellets @Tammie Sparks
Sneaky Donkey I have heard that donkeys are very good "watch dogs". I never gave them any thought until I heard just how protective they are, especially around children. Is this true?, I wonder! Many farmers are getting rid of their donkeys because they feel they are just "hay burners".
