The Caribbean flamingo, the perfect bird for zoo, recreation-park or garden.
About the aviculture of this magnificent bird-species
Flamingos are easy to keep! They can be fed with a special flamingo-pellet (like for example of the brand Mazuri) that contains a complete nutrition. Almost no bird is easier to feed then flamingos. The color maintains orange-red during the whole year.
A small group of flamingos can already be kept in an enclosure of just a few quadratic meter with a small pond or at a natural lake. Flamingos can be kept with other ornamental waterfowl like swans, ducks and geese.
The birds can be kept behind a fence less then one meter high. In some cases flamingos can be kept free; they stay at your compound and if they have a good life they will not go away. In winter they need to be kept at night indoors in case your country has temperatures below 0 C.
The species is getting an age of at least 30 years, is not sensible for diseases and has her breeding-age at 2- 3 years old; breeding occurs regularly in captivity.
