I've been watching "Mutant Planet" and I want a Kiwi (bird). Flightless, 80 day incubation (by the males), hatch fully feathered! The poor hen carries her huge egg INSIDE for 10 days and the egg is nearly the size of her body; she's very uncomfortable until she lays it in a safe spot, then she walks away. Not broody at all - but her mate is! Apparently they are very long-lived: 30 years! And they lay once a year (at least that's what I surmised by the program mentioning they live 30 years and mated pairs can raise 30 chicks over their lifetimes). Of course I don't really want to add Kiwis to my flock, but aren't they interesting? Their nostrils are at the END of their long beaks.
