Cool Kiwis



Would you call a kiwi beautiful? I know I wouldn't. Its plumage is dark and dull and is stiff like dog hair.

The Kiwis feathers are not like other birds. The most ridiculous thing about its bill it can grow up to 20cm long.

The average size of a kiwi is the size of the chicken, the smallest kiwi is called the little spotted kiwi that is smaller than a rugby ball.
The largest kiwi is twice the size of a football.

Did you know kiwis are flightless birds? They have small stubby wings with a curled claw at the end. Their wings are as wrinkly as a old man's face.

Do you know kiwis are fast? They have really Strong powerful legs that can out run a human. They use their legs to fight predators. Kiwis use their strong legs to dig up burrows which is used to lay their eggs in. Some times they bulid it in a log or under the roots of the tree.

And there you have it how could you possibly reist a; flightless,rediculous ,wrinkeled winged,chicken sized burrow buliding speceies?
