Beaky with her owner.

Beaky is a fully grown emu. She stands six feet tall and weighs 240 pounds. She is the pet of Ian Newby 44 and his wife Lisa 36 and their six children.

Beaky came into the woirld after hatching from an egg that Ian put in a home-made incubator. His wife Lisa had given him the egg as a christmas present.

" I didn't think it would work, but astonishingly Beaky was what we got " said Ian.

At first Beaky was confined in a childrenh's playpen but after a few months she was standing three feet tall and able to jump out.

Beaky has confounded experts by remaining tame and domesticated. She loves running round the garden with the children.

She lives on a diet of 14 pounds of corn and five pounds of fruit and vegetables a week and anything else she can get her beak into. The children throw her scraps and she catches them in her beak.

Her den is now the summerhouse because she is a bit messy and only gets into the residence for photoshoots. While she is in she loves watching TV.
