PORTLAND, Ore. (KAIT/NBC News) - The Oregon Zoo in Portland has five new flamingo chicks.

The fuzzy flock is now taking its first steps.

They came to the zoo as eggs from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

They're being hand-reared by care staff at the zoo.

Flamingos are born with pale gray feathers, eventually getting their pink coloring from their diet of brine shrimp and blue-green algae.
