Guys, do you find that the wind really spooks your emus?
I don't know if the wind really spooks our's or if it just gives them more of an excuse to run, jump and fall over playfully, hehe. Although here in Florida we only get a lot of wind if a hurricane is coming.... then we'd all have a good reason to be spooked....
Hmmm . . . this is interesting, Emu Hugger. My emus don't spend time playing in the manner you describe.
A local made an interesting observation. He said that the wheat that I feed my birds they get about a double handful each per day is very high quality food for an emu. He noted that you can tell the difference between an Autumn pile of emu blessing and a mid-Winter pile of emu blessing. The winter model is almost liquid because there's little solid food in Winter. Conversely, in Autumn, there's lots of seed in the wild grasses, and that's protein. My birds spend hours and hours and hours grazing every day. Indeed, in Winter, almost robotically. I really wonder if your birds have more time to play because their food is so much more solidly nutritious. Do your emus spend a great deal of time grazing?
Where i am there is a lot of sand, so grazing is sparse. I think our emu spend more time playing because they have little to fear - no real danger around here, sp more play time... hehe
