Wait.... i thought flamingos were pink because of a high krill diet. So if you fed him only blue crab would they turn blue?
@Smo Queed, I mean paintballs work just as well, but sure, let's try the boring method.
@Smo Queed, their diet takes a while to dye their feathers. They're born gray and it takes years for their feathers to turn pink. My source is the safari ride at Animal Kingdom
@Smo Queed, i thought they ate shrimp
@Smo Queed, actually, the pink is from canthaxanthin in the shrimp and in blue-green algae. I wish i knew that of the top of my head but points go to Google for that one
@Smo Queed, well .. if you'd find a way to get blue tiny crabs, it would be possible. But is manipulation of their genetics worth ?
@Smo Queed, most likely not that simple. Just from what I know about humans and food dye. Kinda like how black food dye makes you poop green but massive amounts of carrots will turn your skin orange.
@Smo Queed, you'd have to find a chemical that would stay in their feathers like canthaxanthin- so it's possible but I doubt blue crabs have a pigment like that
@Smo Queed, Blue crabs don't actually have blue meat so no (it's just their claws that are blue). Source: Living in Maryland

@Sambob, I love the visual but fun fact: flamingos are extremely stable on one foot - they can be propped up dead and be perfectly stable
This is kind of sad because if it's in the nursery something is wrong.
