From San Diego Zoo

A flamingo nest is not fancy, just a mound of mud, maybe 12 inches (30 centimeters) high. The nest needs to be high enough to protect the egg from flooding and from the occasional intense heat at ground level. Both the male and female build the nest by drawing mud toward their feet with their bills. Flamingos lay a single large egg, which is by both parents. At hatching, a flamingo chick has gray feathers. It also has a straight, pink bill and swollen pink legs, both of which turn black within a week.
