All Cracked Up at Huntingdon Health and Rehab

Nh-15.jpg (37796 bytes)Residents at Huntingdon Health and Rehab enjoyed an interactive program February 22 concerning emu eggs.  With the help of residents Blanche McNeil and Georgia Pentecost (cracking eggs in picture to the right), Tennessee Emu Association President Myra Charleston showed residents the differences between emu and chicken eggs.   The ladies found it much more difficult to crack the emu egg than the chicken eggs provided because of the shell thickness.  

 Nh-13.jpg (28104 bytes)Rapping the egg on the table several times, Mrs. McNeil was finally able to break the shell enough to get the egg out.  Residents laughed and applauded her action.  Mrs. Pentecost found her egg just as difficult to break.  Using measuring cups, the residents showed that the emu egg measured just over 2 cups.   It took 9 large chicken eggs to make 2 cups, as Mrs. McNeil demonstrates in the picture above.  Residents examined the thickness of the shell and commented on the light colored yolk of the emu egg vs. the chicken
egg yolk.   Residents learned that emu eggs had three distinct colors layers within the shell, white, teal and the outer dark green.  A carved Connery.jpg (17153 bytes)emu egg by Texas artist Gary Gunn was shown to the residents.  Running their fingers over the egg, residents commented on the depth of the carving and expressed amazement at how deep into the egg the carving went.

In the following question and answer period, Mrs. Charleston informed residents that her emus produced over 300 eggs each year which she blew out, cleaned and sold to egg artists and crafters.  At the end of the program, residents enjoyed a pound cake made with an emu egg.
