I have four Emus three are 2012 chicks, and the fourth is at least twelve years old. Two of the 2012 chicks were sold as female and the third as male I now think that only one is a girl and the other two are boys. That's a bit of a problem since I was really wanting two pairs! Anyway last year Tazz (the girl) started fighting with the other young birds so I put her with my older male in a separate pen and they paired up nicely, good fertility and kept mating till Tazz stopped laying. But this year Mr Emu (Tazz's mate) has gone broody even though she is still laying. My question is will he still mate with her now that he is broody? Or are all eggs from this point going to be duds? What if I moved Tazz in with the other boys? Do you think she will just fight with them? I know in the wild a female will lay in more then one nest in a season and mate with multiple males. Anyone have some experience with this?
