Two 'gay' flamingos dads are successfully raising an abandoned chick after keepers placed it in their shared nest. Flamingo fathers Hudson and Blaze took the egg under their wings after it was rejected by its biological parents at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. See SWNS stry SWMRflamingo. The lone American flamingo egg was initially placed in an incubator at the UK's largest zoo after the parents ditched the nest.But keepers at the Bedfordshire zoo moved it into one shared by Hudson and Blaze - the best candidates amongst the whole 'flamboyance' - a group of flamingos.They sat tight on the egg until it hatched and have been taking exemplary care of their new baby ever since, keepers said.Bird team leader Tim Savage, said: "Flamingos usually work together, as a monogamous pair, to care for their eggs and subsequent chicks."Hudson and Blaze were the clear choice for the incubated egg, as they have always proved to be ideal parents.
