I will possibly be purchasing a 3 year old adult female Emu. It is a 2 hour drive to pick her up and bring her home. I am very excited to get her, but I have a couple of situations here and I thought i would pick your brains. I am not entirely for sure getting her, but I would still like to know and maybe these questions will help someone else. First off I need to know a bit about transporting Emus. My most reliable vehicle is my Carola Station Wagon. I'm not sure if the truck would make the drive up there, so I would be transporting her in the hatch back part of the car with the seat folded down. I have a gate that will separate her from the front seat and it is pretty roomy back there. I could open up either the hatch door in the back or one of the side doors to load her into the car. I also have a large plastic dog crate that i could use, but I would like her to have a lot of room. How do you foresee this working? Any tips for transporting will be helpful. Second is the other problem. There is no way to drive the car directly to the Emu pen. I would have to get her from the car about 50 feet to the pen. I have some 6' fencing that I could make an alleyway out of and herd her into the pen, but I have a couple of questions for you. Are emus easy to herd? Like into the car and down the alley way? Also, since I will have to climb into the back of the car with her, How prone are they to inflicting injury when they are scared? She seems tame, but my brain just works that way. How do emus behave when are really stressed? As I'm sure she will be and i don't want either of us getting hurt. Do think this is a better one person job to keep her less stressed out or is it better to have a helper when working with Emus. Also, is Payback Provider a suitable temporary feed for an Emu until I find a place that sells Ratite food? Here's the CL Ad I'm thinking I could possibly bargain, but then again it is a good deal and he lives in Oregon!
