Conclusion- As per told by experts from Flamingo Gardens in Fort Lauderdale and  Flamingo expert Caitlin Kight, author of the 2015 book Flamingo it looks like a hoax message. Still, we could not find any video on internet which can show a broken flamingo egg. Please do not try to break and check the egg to check for pink color as it might result in death of the baby.
