    This is all Chica does all day, strut and primp. She rarely leaves the area by the gate.

    Sheriff, I don't weary of saying how healthy-looking your birds seem.

    Hey, Sheriff, I've been thinking: I don't think I've ever seen a wild female crank it up anything like Chica!!

    She's just too sexy for her shirt Supreme Emu! [​IMG] That is all she does all day long. She stays right by the gate and struts her stuff. If we tell her how pretty she is she starts grunting like crazy. I saw the four of them doing a little dance in a circle the other day and I wondered if it was some sort of mating thing. The girls are too young, just turning 1 on New year's Day. The boys will be 2 in march. I will try to get a video of it if they do it again.

    Sheriff, Mr Net him sometimes say (and it drives me up the wall . . . ) that birds on commercial farms may mate, or try to, as young as 18 months!

    That intrigued me because more often he say two years; but Greedy didn't actually breed until she was four (and Felicity hasn't yet).
