    My female emu hasn't come out to drink any water for the last 3 days, I keep bringing water into her house but I don't think she's drinking. Is it because its so col out? Will she be ok? Thanks

    I found a perfect trick! I put grapes and apple slices in a cup of water so she had to bob to get them! She got water for sure!

    My 2 boys will only drink slightly warm water in winter, I bring it out several times a day and splash the top and they always come take a drink
