    My emus both disappeared about a week ago.

    Readers may remember that about a year ago I tried to 'rehabilitate' them, but they came home. However, they are fully adult now; breeding season has begun; the drought has broken and there's good feed around. So, I don't think they've had an accident. I think they've gone off to mate.

    I am sure they'll turn up some time; but it will be lonely here for a while. I am so used to Felicity walking through the car port, and Greedy sticking her beak up against the lounge room window. I've fed them twice a day for over eight hundred days; but it is a good thing for them.

    I've thought about that, Foulman: they're both females!

    And yes, Chickenzoo (I've finally figured out the Names Thing, but I'll always think of you as 'Emu Hugger'), they will come back; but I'm not sure they'll ever again base themselves around the house as they used to.

    I think when they get the craving for juicy figs they'll bring the whole new family. [​IMG] And I never minded you calling me Emu Hugger [​IMG]
