    Hi I was wanting to raise a baby rhea that my friend acquired but has no idea anything about them and honestly neither do I. I have 20 acres and was going raise our fences this weekend. I have read that they need 6ft high fencing when full grown. What I need to know is
    1) how do you know how old they are and if they're male or female.
    2)what do they eat?
    3)basically how do I keep this thing alive and thriving
    4)does it need another rhea are they pack animals?
    Google has pretty much got me no where but here.
