Homo Pink Flamingos

A pair of gay flamingos have adopted an abandoned chick, becoming parents after being together for six years, a British conservation organisation said Monday.
Carlos and Fernando had been desperate to start a family, even chasing other flamingos from their nests to take over their eggs at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) in Slimbridge near Bristol.
But their egg-sitting prowess made them the top choice for taking an unhatched egg under their wings when one of the Greater Flamingo nests was abandoned.
Carlos and Fernando waited four years longer than my boyfriend and I did before adopting. Oh, and file this detail as Not Safe Just Before Lunch (NSJBL):
The couple can feed chicks by producing milk in their throats.
Uh… gee. Making milk with their throats, huh? That’s talent.
