Flamingo pair adopt jilted chick

Hi Folks,

A pair of same sex (male) Flamingos are raising an abandoned chick. Apparently the pair have chased others off their nests in the past and raised the chicks so when the staff at Slimbridge found the abandoned one they gave it to the males in an eggshell.
