Hi All! New to the forum and new to emus and have a couple questions. I have a male and a female chick - two weeks old. I've had them for a week now. I've set up a stall in my barn as a brooder area and they're doing fine and loving it. The farmer I got them from said to leave them in there for like 3 weeks. Really? We have a fenced in run attached to this stall with fencing appropriate for small birds. Would it be dangerous to let them out or just that its more of a pain in the butt to herd them back in at night? Also, my kids and I have been out there for bits and pieces every day, sitting in the stall with them, reading, doing schoolwork, whatever just to be there to get them used to us, but they're very much "don't touch me!" How can we get them super friendly and loving so they're not little Raptors when they're bigger? Any suggestions for treats? Finally, I'm on a 12acre farm. The emus are eventually going to be in a 3 acre pasture with sheep that's got 5ft horse fencing, lined on the outside with cedars and reinforced on the inside with rabbit wire. So, no shimmying under it, but should the height/fencing combos be sufficient for emus raised from birth around the sounds of cars and sights of dogs? Don't wanna have to be chasing them around the neighborhood Appreciate any guidance or advice. I've been reading through the forum and researching as much as I can, but sometimes, you just need the "been there done that" kind of guidance!
