    We have been housing our two Nigerian dwarf goats in a run along side our 4 emus (2 adult, two youth we hatched out), is it possible to now put them together? we would like the goats to have more space, and the emus have a huge pasture. Any thoughts out there?

    Yes us long as they have had time to get used to each other they should be fine. I have seen it work done.

    I have had four emus and two fainting goats together since they were all babies. They get along fine. I think the secret is that they have always been together and that the goats are fainters. They don't run much or act out like dwarf Nigis do and irritate others around them.
