Flamingos at the zoo

At the Punta Verde Parco Zoo it's time for new babies: at the fence closeing the flamingos' pond there are about 10 ribbons, some blue, some pink, to celebrate the birth of the baby flamingos. In the pond, you immediatly recognize which are the babies: not yet pink, they will remain grey until about 14-months age.

Looks like a fun time at the zoo. I thought that flamingos turned pink due to the shrimp they ate? Or maybe it's just a story I heard when I was little,lol
