Budapest Zoo has two newborn emu chicks.

Two emu chicks have been born at Budapest Zoo, the zoo said on its homepage on Wednesday.

The father of the emus, Papi, stood guard over the eggs as emu fathers often do. The zoo says the striped chicks hatched one week ago.
Adding that the mother is called Lajos. (A common masculine Hungarian name)

In Australia, emus are the largest bird native.  They are flightless, and can reach up to two metres in height and weigh up to 55 kg.

The newly hatched chicks are around 12 cm tall, weigh a half kilo and have brown and cream coloured stripes for camouflage, which is expected to fade after around three months.
