Baby flamingos will begin to move out of their nest area around 7 to 12 days old and begin to explore their surroundings. At 2 weeks old the chicks gather in groups, and this group keeps growing to thousands, which is very dangerous against the enemy.
Surprisingly, the parents are able to locate their offspring in a flock of thousands of these with their own calls. These young birds will be sexually mature before the age of 3. But most of them will not reproduce at this age, but 2 or more years later. In the wild flamingos can live up to 40 years.
