    WOW!! I've never seen an Emu chick! What's the deal with Emus? What are they like? What kind of temperament do they have? Anything? I've never known someone to own one!

    I visit BYC only rarely; but this is Uno the Chick and Dad, Eric the Emu, sitting at the bottom of my garden. They will both eat from your hand, and you can pat the chick.

    Eric and his offspring have been under observation for seven years.
