I thought I would do a different kind of post this morning and show you my "pet" flamingo. This was bought for my by my sister for Christmas and it's on of those "grow your own" toys.
It was really simple to do and hatched much quicker than it says on the box. I submerged it in water - the only glass I could find big enough was a pint glass - and the egg kept floating to the top.
By that night it has cracked and by the following morning, a flamingo head had appeared. I'm not sure what the egg was made from but it felt like a plastic / waxed paper which flaked away. I didn't touch it until the egg was mostly gone and what was left behind was my very own... PET FLAMINGO!
If you're wanting to buy one yourself they are around £3 on Amazon. It's very cute and I just wanted to share it with you.
