Awesome. You have to post pics when those chicks hatch. I love emus. They make an awesome sound, very gentle (at least the flock I got to walk around and pet), and very soft.
Brahma hen with her baby, this little trooper got attacked by a duck a few hours after she was hatched, she ended up getting her left wing torn off, and momma nearly killed the duck.
I winded up moving her and her baby into my bathtub, thinking this chick wasn't long for this world, but her mom was determined to get this little girl to survive.
Eventually they moved outside, the second day out, I found a hawk on top of her dead mother, and the baby was nowhere to be seen.
I found her baby a few hours later cowering underneath a bucket, still alive.
We named her Trooper.
