IMGUR CAPTION: Emu is the richest tasting of all the edible bird eggs. The white is almost like glue because it's so thick. The yolk is actually a pale yellow. You know how when you run your fork through a chicken yolk, and it starts to ooze out? Well, emu eggs aren’t like that. You break the yolk open and it just sits there. It's like silly putty. The egg has 7 layers, which is why egg artists prefer them for carving or painting. The eggs usually weigh between 600-700 grams when full (about 1.5 pounds). If you compared an emu egg to a chicken egg you would need 10-12 chickens to one emu.
