Charlotte Harrison didn’t know if her emu egg would hatch when she ordered it on eBay, but 47 days later, baby Kevin arrived.
The unlikely new member of the family spent over a month inside a home incubating system purchased by Charlotte, then finally hatched on January 5th. “I sat there for four hours making squeaks and whistles to coax him out,” she told Mirror, an experience which led little Kevin to form an instant bond with her.
Adorable little birds waddling around the house seems like fun – unless your little bird is set to grow as tall as 6 feet! The emu is the second largest bird in the world after the ostrich, so Charlotte could get more than she bargained for with Kevin very soon. For now, enjoy these photos of him bonding with his new family. (h/t)
