About the video...
This spring, I purchased two emu eggs on ebay. Not knowing if they were even fertile I placed them in an incubator and turned them 6 times a day for 54 days making absolute certain they were kept at the perfect temperature and humidity. My hard work paid off when both eggs hatched out healthy beautiful chicks. I named them Kabul and Fig and raised them together with two Ostrich chicks (Mormor & Sexy Sexy Sniper). As of December 2013, the chicks are all 6 months old and still have a lot of growing to do. They're all very close with each other and very dear to my heart. They are truly living dinosaurs.

About the Emu...
The emu is the second largest bird on the planet, standing nearly 6 tall, and weighing up to 120 pounds. Emus cannot fly but they are fast runners - up to 30 mph. Surprisingly, they are also strong swimmers. Some scientists consider emus to be living dinosaurs because their bones and joints are similar. Their ability to store fat allows them to go without food for long periods of time. Emus can defend themselves with tremendously powerful forward kicks. They eat great quantities of caterpillars, grasshoppers, and masses of the burrs that tangle sheep wool, which makes them helpful to farmers. They also hate weasel balls.
