What do Flamingos Eat?

What do flamingos eat?

They feed on crustaceans, mollusks, seeds, insects, various types of algae found in water, and even diatoms.

The diet for Flamingos in captivity is very different but it still offers them the nutrition that they need to thrive. They are fed pellets that have the pigmentation in them that they would ordinarily get from their diet in the wild. This way they don’t lose the colors on their feathers that come from the Beta Carotene in those foods sources.
