Large Birds

We have a few different birds as well at our farmshop including Ostriches & Emus.

Fun Facts about the Bird's

  • Ostriches are the largest bird in the world followed by the Emu (both of which are on site here at Mainsgill).
  • Emu's have two sets of eyelids, one for blinking and the other for keeping the dust out!
  • An average ostrich egg weighs around 3 pounds (about the weight of two dozen chicken eggs!).
  • An Emu has three toes on each foot, while an ostrich has only two.
