|Don't worry, Daddy's watching out for Ewe!|
|Daddy will keep Ewe warm, but Ewe must stay under the "covers"!|
|Calling all Dads! Let's huddle together & call the "Play"!|
Emperor Penguin Dads are my first choice for my "Top Ten" list & have the arduous task of incubating the family "Nest" egg in very harsh conditions. Mom delivers the egg & leaves to get something to eat for a period of about 2 months! Dad has to huddle together with all the other abandoned "Dads" & keep the egg warm in up to 76 degree below zero temps! They keep the egg balanced on their feet in a pouch under their feathered skin known as a brood pouch. They stand braving the elements & do not eat until the female returns from feeding. Once the chicks are hatched, the "Dads" even feed the chicks with milk from glands found in their esophagus.
Wow! Now that's a dedicated Dad!
|When Ewe are a Jacana, being a Dad is serious business!|
|As a Jacana Dad, Ewe have to walk "Lightly" & carry a "Load" of Responsibility!|
|Jacana Dads "Work Hard", making nests & incubating eggs!|
|I am a wise old owl! Father does know best!|
|Being a good Dad is Hard Work!|
|I would definitely be considered a "DEAD BEAT DAD!|
|Raising a family is overrated!? I would rather hang out with my BUDS!|
|Shepherds fulfill the Dad's role in the sheep family!|
