The Sacramento Zoo recently announced the birth of six (adorable) American flamingo chicks, also known as Caribbean flamingos. The babies hatched between June 28 and July 30, yes it took two days, and they're the first of the species to be born at the zoo since 1999. So ya, its kind of a huge deal at the moment.
Now these birds don't have crazy milestones like us humans. They don't need to rolling over, crawling, walking, talking. It's all too much. No, baby Flamingos have a smaller goal... to stand on one leg.
The small chicks are currently being cared for around-the-clock by the zoo staff. Only when they are strong enough to survive on their own will they be introduced to the rest of the flock.
We can't wait to see these adorable chicks all grown up and just lounging around on a perfected one-legged stance.
