FREE pair of emus!

Discussion in 'Ostriches, Emu, Rheas' started by chickensducks&agoose, Sep 18, 2009.

  1. My local newspaper has advertised this FREE pair of Emus, one boy, one girl, for the past 2 weeks. The ad can be found at in the classified's FREE section. I am super tempted, but not set up to accommodate ...

    Oh WOW! that would almost complete the craziness around here [​IMG] [​IMG] Just today we were discussing the fact that just about the only thing we don't have are Emu's! What timing [​IMG]

    Ooooooooohhhhhhh I want Emus!!!

    are we sure it's not a Nigerian Scam?? [​IMG]
  6. I'm pretty sure they don't have emus in Nigeria.. plus

    2 ADULT EMUS: 1 male, 1 female.
    Well cared for. A good addition to your
    barnyard community or small farm. Free
    to a good home.

    it's a local number, Rochester, VT... I live about half an hour away, and am SO tempted!!!

    So, ChickensDucksandaGoose, did you get your Emu's yet? [​IMG]
  9. Well, my coop is stuffed full of 17 pullets/hens, and my goose house is stuffed full of 6 ducks and a goose... the only other place I have to hold birds is my husband's office.... hmmmm... when he gets back from his military training, he might be surprised by a couple of new room-mates....

    Yes they can live with horses. We have a small 5 acre farm not far from our farm that has ponies, geese, lamas and emu's all in the same pen.
