In a release, the Peabody Museum of Natural History said the emu eggs incubating there "will reach the end of their 7-8 week (50 day) gestation period around March 11 and will begin hatching thereafter."
"Visitors will be able to watch the baby emus poke their beaks through the dark blue-green eggs and break out of their shells," the release said. "As birds are a lineage of living dinosaurs, seeing emus hatch provides a chance to reflect on the hatching of dinosaur eggs millions of years ago. The Peabody incubator contains fertile eggs from the Songline Emu Farm in Gill, Massachusetts. The emu incubator and nursery are located in the Tiny Titans exhibition hall."
