John Ball Zoo shows off the new baby flamingos

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM)- For a limited time visitors can watch the John Ball Zoo's newest additions get their daily exercise.  The zoo is raising ten baby Chilean flamingos.  As part of their exercise, zookeepers walk the flamingos from their holding area to the central zoo plaza.

The flamingos are about 40 days old and won't turn pink for another two years. 

The zoo will hold two more flamingo parades Thursday at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.
