    I only had to drive an hour to pick up my one week old emu. Thanks Eve (ChanceRider on BYC) and her DH, A.J. for meeting me halfway. She is home in a temporary brooder on my desk, catching up on BYC, tossing water and food all over the place. What a sweet girl!

    The cage may last the week. [​IMG] And, I am getting two more. This was the only one ready right now and I wanted to start bonding with her.
