        The weather is fall, going into winter. The eggs take about two and
a half months to hatch. The weather would be getting more spring-like by
then. I read that the temps don't get below freezing very often and Emu's
are very hardy birds. (Don't forget the male continues to be the sole
caregiver even after they hatch.)
