    Cuz I made the mistake of mentioning how cool I think it would be to hatch an emu egg... Cuz you know, we totally have room
    for an emu on our city lot... And I totally know where to sell one of those things... Yeah, I'm full of great ideas!

    Me too - I want to hatch an Emu egg! I'm just afraid I'll be stuck with it running all over the neighborhood.

    I think the Emu is a great idea. It was the 7ft chain link fence that slowed me down. The run needs to be roughly 100' long and about 12' wide. That would be the minimum. space needed. I do know that they are edible if they get to be to irritating. That all seems so negative. The Emu is still a great idea, it I wasn't stuck in a sub-division, I would be thinking harder about get one.
