emu chicks

Postby daffyduckman48 » Tue Jun 14, 2011 4:15 am

I am looking for a young pair of emu chicks to raise for pets. We have about an acre and a half fenced in for them. If someone has young ones now or will have them this coming season please email me or call and leave a message. Preferably in or near ohio. Thanks Dave

dave,

seems the emu chicks are hard to come by these days.
I am still looking for some.

I was thinking of getting the eggs to hatch,but, don't have an incubator.
the eggs might be easier to find.

sometimes mt hope auction has emus.

If I find any, I will let you know.

Sorry guys I have not be on in a while.

I will be hatching some, but I do not think I could ship them. Would be hard on the chicks and really expensive.

I could sale and ship you some eggs, or a friend of mine sales eggs each year and ships. She has about 12 birds, so she would give you as many fresh eggs as you wanted.

You can hatch them in small incubator, it is just a lot of work. Need to turn them 3 or 4 times a day, weigh them often to make sure they are losing the right amount of weight. But this is the way I got started with emus.

Let me know if you want any eggs.

Cutitdead

good to see you post again. I was wondering what happen to you.
I don't have an incubator for eggs icon-sad nor the patience and time
to turn eggs. wish I did though.


trefoil,
thank you for that link. as much as I would love to have more emus,
I kind of have a "full plate" right now.

Pat I might be able to help. Where are you in PA. There is a farm in Hughesville MD (going through there soon)that has some chicks and I am also in Cutitdeads neck of the woods a bunch also. Have some upcoming races in PA so maybe can help if needed.

I've been looking for two emu chicks. I live in eastern Oklahoma and can't find any chicks anywhere. :shrug: I don't want to ship them if I can avoid it. We have 5 fenced acres for them and have done a lot of research to prepare. We're willing to do what it takes to raise healthy, happy emu pets (only looking to buy two and prefer only females if possible). Does anyone know where I can buy them in either Oklahoma or Arkansas? Thanks....

I don't know of any. I also have a hard time finding them.
years ago, they were very popular and easy to find, but more expensive.
now that the market dropped, guess not many people are breeding them.

one option could be to find fertile eggs. if you are good at incubating them, that might work. :shrug:

there was a member here a few years ago that use to raise them, but, I have no idea what happened to him.
his web site it down. in fact, he lives in the same state as you. I will try and email him and see if I get a response.

another member cutidead raises them, but, can't remember what state he lives in, I will contact him too.

hope you find some, they do make nice pets, I miss mine :cry:

if you have a local zoo near you, try calling them. I actually bought mine at the zoo. but, they were adults when I got them.
they might be able to direct you to where to get some.

You might try craigslist, also just so you know the males are more tame then the females.

I have emu, have not bred them yet though.

glad you mentioned that, I too found the males to be more friendly.
craigslist :shock: never thought of that. sometimes, we have to be careful though.
but, it is like that everywhere icon_confused.gif
