A chicken is a chicken. Sometimes it helps to nail their feet to the ground. (Does bad stuff is you are trying to get it to fly)

This is a nice composition. I dont care if it was captive.

Thank You Larry, The Flamingo photo was taken at a place called WWT Slimbridge, it is not a zoo but a Wetland Wildlife Reserve, it is located by the Side of an Estuary and so has many water bird visitors on its Wetlands that live there. There are also always many different migrants that are on their way to their summer breeding grounds. Some of which decide to stay. It is a lovely place to visit and to be a member of as Slimbridge does so much research and is involved in projects and internationally run captive breeding programmes.

Thanks for showing us some birds we haven't seen before. Are you sure something wasn't stalking you while you were stalking the birds?
