This is Rita, our newest emu, not sure of its exact age, somewhere between 6-8 moths old. Picked her up in upstate PA yesterday for her four and a half hour ride down to VA. She is now in the introductory pen adjacent to the large emu enclosure. She is not intimidated at all by the larger emus, but they are acting very agressive towards her through the wire (as expected). The adults were already riled up, as their hormones have started to kick in, just before mating season, lots of drumming and grunting going on! My question is: do you think that, because of the timing, I will have to wait until after the breeding season to introduce her to the older birds or do you think they will get used to her and begin to ignore her as they concentrate on their own love life?
