    were going to be buying some ostriches, emus and rheas for our community farm and I was wondering if you could tell me a simple website that tells you there health problems, diseases, symptoms and treatments or if you know them yourself thank you in advance :) all of the sites I found were quit shabby when it comes to simple explanations

    you may want to consider buying books , like the Emu farmers handbooks volume 1 and 2 .
    2nd one covers all the ratites more so than the first one, you can find them at Amazon and/or ebay .
    Then there's the ratite encyclopedia that again, you may can find at Amazon or ebay ..
    Those are somewhat dated publications but are extremely reliable .... the info. in them has been studied extensively .

    When/if you find any info. online make sure it comes from a reputable source...you have to do some extensive internet searches to come up with reliable answers from reliable sites/sources such as an Avian Med. sites, Merck Veterinary, etc .
