I remember when emus were going to be the next big thing. I know Jude's Mom and Dad had some emu's they were going to raise. I think there is a reason why that whole idea faded away. Emu's are mean and hard to deal with. That hasn't stopped thieves from raiding the Mobile Alabama Zoo and making off with unborn emu's in the form of eggs.I guess emu eggs would make a great big omellette or one heck of a fried egg sandwich, but I think I will stick with the chickens.
