    I was looking at all the emu pics and they look so friendly. I am looking forward to hopefully getting a couple within the next couple years. Can they live inside your house? Go on car rides?
    PS. I am talking about when they are young (not full grown)

    CANNOT live in a house, unless you crave mayhem in your life.

    Try it and let me know how it works, or how they tear up your house.

    Not inside all the time. I would let them go outside often.
    On the "emu pics stories etc." Thread I saw some pics of younger emus just laying Dow under a trampoline at a barbeque and it made me think that would be awesome
