It's too bad there are so few left. I think the pacific northwest is down to a few thousand breeding pairs now.

No we didn't climb the fence at the zoo, but now you've got me thinking. :shk:
The chase scene happened at a farm in Ontario, Canada. They raise emu for meat, and they also sell breeding stock for other farmers.
It would be cool to have emu just walking around in the wild though, but alas, not where I live...........

I was watching an episode of the Iron Chef and the Japanese dude was using an ostrich egg. He damn near needed an acetylene torch to get the freakin'

I've heard that ostrich eggs a very tough to open, and I'm not sure I'd want to eat one anyway.
I have an emu egg sitting on my desk right now and the thing is a dark green with a very textured surface. A bird had hatched out of the egg and I
kept all the pieces and glued it back together. It's kinda a neat coversation piece.
