My FIL is going to order some poultry for spring and he mentioned something to me earlier if I knew where to get some emu chicks. He has had ostrich before but not when I was around. They were in the field with the camels and the only problem he had was during feeding time. The camels take turns putting their head in the feed bucket but the ostrich wanted to keep their heads in it. We could make separate feeding areas for them with a feeder the camels can't eat out of so the emus could. I had been talking about looking at the pictures on here and it must of got him thinking of emus. I'm not sure how big our camel area is but I think it is probably bigger than an acre. We have a 8' high chain link fence all the way around it. We only have 3 camels in the field. I didn't know if they would be alright together. I've seen giraffes in zoos with ostriches before. Also how dangerous can a emu get? I know they can gut someone very easily. If I hand raised a couple and made sure they were introduced to a bunch of people and new surroundings as babies I know they could become tame but also know that they are a large bird and like any other animal can turn. If we do get any I will be mostly taking care of them but once they get large I will be having my FIL help just incase. How much do emu chicks usually cost? We would be wanting some mainly for a hobby.
