When Mrs. Tooshtoosh first got here, she was a little hoity toity about the comestibles -- not like Tooshtoosh, who lopes into action at the first sign of Yummy wheat. But Mrs. T. would sorta mosey over.
Not any more! Chopped apples. She loves chopped apples. And now both of them spring hungrily into action when I turn up with chopped apples.

All three emus got out the other day, oy. We had a big wind storm and a tree came down on my fence, and out they went. Luckily, the neighbors spotted them and actually rounded them up into their duck pen. The duck pen only has fencing about three feet high, so they were only staying in there because they didn't really want to be out, lol.

I got the fence fixed, and then had all three follow me back across the road and across my property into their pen, with my neighbor walking behind in case any of them wandered. But they all followed me right over and in.

My neighbor was a bit intimidated by Ciara, haha. He thought it was funny when I told him she was a sweetheart and not to worry, but it's the truth, she's a good girl.

Meanwhile I'm watching Crikey It's the Irwins and watching them try to load an emu into a horse trailer to take it out to release it, and they're having a bit of a hard time. Thank goodness mine are so tame and will follow me, lol.

Yikes! It's good to have bird friendly neighbors. I can't imagine the chaos that would have resulted had they wandered far and run amok around the neighborhood LOL I'm glad they are ok.

I saw that episode of the Irwins. They sure milked that one for the camera. That lil emu wasn't big enough to be too scary :D

Pretty cool your neighbors were able to round them up.

Well, the plums just got big enough to be serious business: the parrots drop them as they forage. So, Tooshtoosh and Mrs. Tooshtoosh have been beaten off by Limpychick and 'Sandy' (her consort). Such a clear pattern here: Limpychick visited at intervals; but as soon as the plums were viable, she took over.
