Also, I guess what I got from that article was; if you have no way of avoiding bottle-feeding the animal yourself, always neuter before sexual maturity.

ratites don't take bottles.

I have a pet Emu and its pretty docile with me and lets me handle him/pet him. Not puppy dog tame, but well enough.

I really would like some of the other rattites, maybe with time.
