With the long claws on thier feet.
Kiwi birds usually lay only one egg per season & although the kiwi is roughly the size of a chicken, it lays eggs that are about six times the size of a chicken's egg. Further as Kiwis are not constrained by needing to be able to fly some Brown Kiwi females can carry and lay a single 450 g (16 oz) egg. Once a year, a kiwi lays one large egg that makes up about 15-20% of its body weight, then, 24 days later, lays another egg. The second egg is beginning to develop as soon as the first is laid. On rare occasions, a kiwi may lay a third egg. The kiwi can lay only one egg at a time, as the egg is huge.
No. The Kiwi is a flightless bird.
the name kiwi derives from the key word "fruit" which means you lash out at people with a rage of the gods but the GAY GODS, in other words quit being pussy whipped. the name kiwi origonated in 1825, it is a name given to the maori tribe of new zeeland.
The kiwi is New Zealand's national icon because it is a New Zealand native bird.
It is a unique indigenous bird, easily identifiable, and for those reasons has been chosen as an icon.
This flightless bird has some completely unique characteristics which are not shared with any other species, such as nostrils at the very end of its bill, and an extremely highly developed sense of smell which enables it to detect food underground to the length of its bill.
The kiwi is not the only native bird which is endangered in New Zealand, but it has a very distinctive and easily recognised shape, which make it ideal as a New Zealand "icon". It is also in need of protection as, like many other species, it has become highly threatened by the effects of European settlement.
