well, only you could make that decision. I didn't realize you were in the UK - let alone you could have rheas there :shock:
Hope the donkey isn't too upset. Love the pic!

Thank you. No Oliver was fine, Chris Rhea had tried to attract Eric the Alpaca who wasn't the slight bit interested, poor Rhea was so frustrated. I loved him though. The Uk can have Rheas without a licence unlike Emus and Ostrich which need one. Did a lot of research before getting one though initially was looking at Emus. There is a specialist Emu smallholding in Leicestershire which we visited but what swung decision was meeting two female rheas loose in a small bird park in Denbigh, Wales. They were in an enclosure but the general public accessed through the enclosure well garden actually to get to further ponds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRIZBZt1UW8 long video but rhea clip is about 2mins in. (If you are interested).

you made the right decision. it is best for everyones safety.

it would not have mattered if you had another female.
sometimes rheas will get along OK with other animals,
but, not with people icon-sad

the male rheas can really hurt a person, even behind a fence if someone approaches the fence.

I can testify to that for sure, and also seen a friend of mine get hurt from my male rhea I had.

the emus's make much better pets.

The clip is great, love the music with it! Black swan and burdekin ducks, it could have been in Australia. If I get to the UK again, I 'll go there, it looks really nice. I like the message on youtube to the duck hunters :mrgreen:

Beak Trimming?

Postby tlengle68 » Thu Jul 21, 2016 1:19 pm

Has anyone ever trimmed a Rhea's beak? My female has a "underbite" I didn't know if her beak could be filed??

never heard of trimming a ratites beak. I personally don' think it is a good idea.

you might want to have a vet look at it.
