So I discovered a few years ago that Emu farming is actually this HUGE thing here. I'm not entirely sure why, but it's like insanely popular. Which whatever, I love a good edible meat. I also saw on a morning show I was watching with my mom the other day that you can feed something like 8-10 people with an Emu egg. At which point I totally wanted to get one for home because with Ace heading into puberty he eats like a horse and could probably eat an Emu egg in a sitting.
Anyhow, other interesting things I learned about Emus are:
1) They are nomadic and may travel long distances to find food.
2) They can live between 10 and 20 years in the wild.
3) Females are a small amount larger than males and have a wider rump.
4) They require pebbles and stones to assist in the digestion of plant material.
