    Click on uploads, click choose file and choose file from your computer(double click on it) then choose submit. It will take a few min for the pic to load and will then show up on a page of its own. Upload as many pics as you want and have space for. Then to put pics in your posts, click on uploads, click on my uploads in bottom right corner, then copy and paste the image url into the post and it will show up when you submit the post. I hope this helps

    I was told that emus will eat frogs and snakes and like to swim. I have a big pond in my adult emu pasture and have yet to see them swim, the little ones like to lay in their water dish. Does anyone have any knowledge on whether an emu's diet would consist of frogs, snakes, etc.. ? Thanks

    I have not yet seen my emu eat a frog or snake...... I caught a snake once and called Jazzy to come kill it. He looked at it, stepped on it and then was like... ewwwwweee I'm out of here, LOL. They will swim however and love the water. Mine are always in the kiddie pools laying side ways.

    My husband likes the emus a bit more than I do. It may be a guy thing. Regardless, I'm the one who feeds and takes care of them. The little ones are so fun to watch. They do this circular dance where they run around in a circle bobbing their heads up and down and kicking out. I need to get it on video.[​IMG]
