Emus in Harness & Ziploc Diaper (Video) - Page 2
Zazouse, the bands are so that I know which emu is which. I have two boys and two girls...and they look so much alike! The lady that sent them to me put the bands on them - they're velcro, so they can be adjusted while the emus grow. I don't notice my emus pecking at the bands at all, so it must be fairly comfortable! the lady I bought them from suggested using some sort of calf paint when they get older....I guess I would just put a bit of this special paint on their legs so that I can continue to identify them even when they outgrow the leg bands.
Haha! Thanks! Right now they're inside. Just had some horrible thunderstorms last night (even saw a tornado in the distance). Theirbrooder and run was underwater. When I got home last night from a meeting, my poor babies were almost waist high in water. My husband ran out and got them for me (I'm scared of lightning...lame). We set them up in one of our bathrooms. They're doing great this morning, but now I gotta go clean up their brooder and run.
Take a look online at dog diapers, or male marking diapers. They helped me figure out a better way to do bird diapers, and you can get an idea about tabs & such.
