The eggs of these birds are dark green to blend with the grass. The male waits until the female lays at least 9 eggs and then he starts incubating them by sitting on the nest. He incubates them for 52-56 days and doesn’t eat or drink during this time. An emu chick picture may baffle viewers because of the sheer size of the chick.
