Male emu sounds

Emus make different sounds depending on their gender. The girls make a “boom boom’ sound and the boy’s grunt like pigs. Fitting. They don’t make these sounds until they reach a certain age. Before they make their adult sounds, they whistle. Chica and Loca at 8 months old are still whistling. Stuart and Louis are almost 18 months old and they are beginning to make the grunting sound. Stuart makes it a lot during his guard activities. I heard Louis making the grunting sound while watching the turkeys this morning. Listen carefully for it.


Nobody makes any sounds while they share breakfast with Laverne and Shirley. Eatin’ is serious business at the Buck ‘n Run!
