Emu hatch!

The male Emu is sitting on eggs in the house in the Zoo extension.  He has fifteen eggs but we don’t expect them all to hatch.  The first chick was observed today.  When the Emu started sitting he had seven eggs but the female continued to lay eggs by him over the next ten days and he pulled them under so they may hatch later than the first.  We wait and see.
