Hello!
I have two emus that are just under 2 years old. I have a male and female and the male has almost completely lost its feathers. I believe we have finally figured out why, we believe it may be our rambunctious goat pulling his feathers. We have separated them but the goat always seems to find a way back to him. Anyway, we should have that problem completely handled now. My concern is it’s winter time and the emu is bare. Is there such a thing as an emu coat or blanket? Any recommendations on what to use, how and fabrics? I am sewing capable so could make something, just need ideas on what could work.

Looks like you'll be the pioneer of emu blankets! If it get seriously cold in your area, you must cosset this bird until is re-plumages

[Is 're-plumage' even a word?]

We have him in the barn since it snowed, my husband was able to fit this outfit up for him! He really enjoyed the sleeve on his bare neck😁
