Take that, state government of Florida!

Gay storks make good parents
Four gay storks have proved they are as capable of raising a family as their heterosexual counterparts.
Staff at the zoo in Overloon, near Eindhoven, were unsure if the gay and lesbian storks would still have the same natural urge to raise offspring.
But after giving one egg to a pair of gay males to sit on, and another two eggs to a pair of lesbian storks, they say the gay storks took to parenthood straight away.
Zoo spokeswoman Esther Jansen said all three chicks had hatched successfully: "The gay storks look after the eggs and the chicks just as well as our heterosexual birds."

Four of them! Should this make a case for polygamists rather than gays?

um, i think that means two couples; two male 'gay' storks and two female 'lesbian' storks --therefore no polygamy involved.

but power to the Overloon Zoo for even considering going through with an experiment like this. they get the TT props for sure!

Storks are against nature.
