Gay flamingos???? Hate to burst that bubble, but one of them had to copulate with a bird of the opposite sex in order to hatch a chick, duh. Also, it's not unusual for flamingos to raise chicks cooperatively, as they live in large colonies. As for producing milk "in their throats," all flamingos secrete a substance from their upper digestive tract that is called "crop milk," to feed their chicks.
The convoluted lengths some people will go to just to validate their lifestyles. Sheesh!

To further simplify the translations: Pigs, pigs, pigs in one form or fashion---one and all!
The egg was abandoned by the parents. The two gay flamingoes adopted the egg and brooded it until it hatched.
I do hope voting instructions don't become so simple even you can understand them.
Heh! Funny stuff! The gay flamingo thing was...bizarre to say the least.
Who follows gay flamingos around for 6 years anyway?
Probably cut from the same cloth as the people who measure polar bear testes.
For that matter, who pays the grants to follow gay flamingos for several years?
