Skip to comments.Gay flamingos pick up chick

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.
The couple, together for six years, can feed chicks by producing milk in their throats.
"Fernando and Carlos are a same sex couple who have been known to steal other flamingos' eggs by chasing them off their nest because they wanted to rear them themselves," said WWT spokeswoman Jane Waghorn.
"They were rather good at sitting on eggs and hatching them so last week, when a nest was abandoned, it seemed like a good idea to make them surrogate parents."
Gay flamingos are not uncommon, she added.
"If there aren't enough females or they don't hit it off with them, they will pair off with other males," she said.
This needs a “Rediculous Alert”
I thought ALL flamingos were gay!
And they steal children. Interesting
Gay Flaming O’s
I bet their nest looks fabulous.
Fernando and Carlos are a same sex couple
Won't take long for the Sodom-promoters to use this as evidence for the naturality of homosexuality and justify same-sex marriage.
By Gay, do they mean they have anal sex?
Especially along Miami's South Beach............
Why do we keep seeing these homosexual animals in nature stories coming up? Do the gay activists really think that it makes them seem more natural if there is evidence of homosexuality in the animal kingdom???
“even chasing other flamingos from their nests to take over their eggs “
“A pair of gay flamingos...”
Sorry, no such thing unless they mean “happy”, which they don’t.
That's a stretch..........
How many more posts till this thread is pulled?......2 maybe 3?.........
Are they chickophiles? Maybe Dahmer was just ‘adopting’ abandoned youths.
My question is are they really two male flamingos or a sterile female and a male?
What a ridiculous lie.
Also seen in the animal kingdom:
...the list goes on and on. Curiously, there is no such thing as “marriage” in the animal kingdom.
The couple, together for six years, can feed chicks by producing milk in their throats.Do the funky chicken.
Actually, gay animal threads are always relevant to this forum, because of the reek of desperation from the buttsex crowd.
Brother, did you just hit the nail squarely on the head!
I am so tired of the homos and other Liberal Trash in this country, and their media sycophants, reinventing words to establish a frame of mind.
An alternate reality, as it were, as if Superman's bizarro twin living on bizzaro world is the norm now in Americo.
Gay?? Sounds like a newspeak word for fag, queer, or homo.
The fact that they are not packing fecal matter up each other's rectums is ignored.
It appeals to those who have already been brainwashed by the Godless into the notion that man is just another animal, so if there is same-sex attraction among animals, why not among people? The MSM is in league with the queers in spreading their propaganda.....
Well, they are birds..... Might have something to do with their peckers.
Exactly! There are a lot of behaviors in the animal kingdom that we don’t want to imitate. Why should homosexual behavior among animals persuade someone that it’s somehow normal and natural and worthy of humans being that way?
When are they moving to Massachusetts to be married?
Great news for the flamingos! They will be invited to the Oprah Winfrey show, and be priviliged guests at the next democrat convention! Special laws will be passed to give them the same rights as humans. Anyone who says anything derogatory about their arrangement will be arrested for a hate crime!
Exactly, just because they sit on eggs together doesn’t mean they are Gay. It is a homo-erotic fantasy of the Left that they can be, so they assign human traits to animals where none exist.
O. M. G.....LOLLLLLL!
There are numerous animals that mate for life.
That's a lot closer to true marriage than a lot of Americans get.
Only mammals have mammary glands that produce real milk. Birds produce what is called “crop milk,” food that is partly digested in the crop and then coughed back up and fed to fledglings.
I suppose a male flamingo can do that, although I haven’t found a source to confirm it. I think there are bird species where the mother and father share the duty of feeding their young.
All that said, it doesn’t have much bearing on whether this shows that homosexual behavior is “natural.” They are really desperate to prove that, but from either a religious or a Darwinian point of view, homosexuality is unnatural, because it involves sex without procreation and does not help preserve the species.
I bet their nest looks fabulous.
Yes, they watch ‘QueerEye for Gay Flamingos’ Nest’ tv show on the GayBirds network.
The ridiculous lengths “gay” (never mind what I really want to call it) promoters will go to to prove they’re all OK, natural and normal.
If it weren’t for the “Gay ‘90s” and the legacy since, we wouldn’t be hearing these pathetic attempts to normalize homosexual humans by telling stories of some few abnormal wildlife.
That’s funny, because birds do NOT have...those...things....that men so worship of themselves.
What birds have are cloaca, which I think in males means they have to “reverse balloon” it to use it for male purposes.
I’m not sure if a bird would go to all that trouble for sex.
As someone else indicated, it probably means no more than the 2 guys are just good buddies who have no women.
Yes, but they have the good sense not to demand that the rest of us recognize their relationship as marriage (under pain of being labled zooophobic).
