    This forum has become quiet. Que sera.

    Anyone seen Emu Hugger? Sheriff is still posting. Hi, Calla! Causarius is a veteran. KBGH?

    Eric is here today. In 79 months, I've observed his immediate family (and this year's clutch, just one chick, is with him now):

    greedy
    boy emu -- eight live chicks
    noddy -- seven live chicks
    alpha
    omega

  2. Your observations from the wild are great benchmarks for emu farmers and pet owners. Thanks for sharing. PS Happy Hogmanay.

    I am still here Mark. Loca finally started laying but we have yet to get any eggs from Chica.

    I love reading your reports. It is so cool to know what they do in the wild versus standing at my fence watching me trough the window until I come out with a cookie. [​IMG]

    Last post for a little while -- summer is hard:

    the personality thing!! Emus have more than I would have thought, and it's surprising how much you can see in the tame-wild birds.

    Little Uno is just amazingly tame, far more than Alpha and Omega ever become, although they arrived at about the same age. I can already pat Uno.

    One other thought: this is a fair datum: there is, guys, some Mysterious Greater Pattern of Emu Movements -- or perhaps an anarchic unpattern. At this point, headin' on seven years, I note a sharp difference in the 'waves' of 'just cruisin' through' wild birds that I see. Notwithstanding my eyes, I have at times seen whole flocks and schmoozes of wild birds passing through this area. Conversely, I have seen only two wild birds in 8 weeks this spring and summer.

    Will pop in in autumn.
     
  6. Stay cool....we'll miss you.
