How about a giant omelet from emu?

Ann Merkel sells huge green emu eggs at her table at the Lawrence, Kan., Farmers' Market.

The eggs go for four bucks apiece.

They weigh up to two pounds and are the equivalent of about a dozen chicken eggs.

She has eight pairs of breeding birds on her Sundance Emu Ranch.

Her husband Bill is especially fond of scrambled Emu egg.

But he tells the Journal-World newspaper one egg is enough for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
