A couple of days ago I noticed my 2 year old emu Louis had a large hematoma on his back and feather loss. I first thought maybe he rolled under the ranch fence and stood up suddenly and injured himself. I thought maybe he pulled the feathers out trying to scratch the injury. Now I wonder if he is being picked on. He resides with his brother, same age and two 15 month old girls. They have always gotten along quite well. Louis is in a committed relationship with LaVerne, a year old fainting goat, so maybe that has something to do with it. They like to take long walks on the beach in the moonlight, etc. Maybe one of the females is jealous and pecking him? Do I need to be alarmed about this? He is carrying on as if there is nothing wrong.
