Cute little Emu chick

(19/07/2023) Imagine residing on the outskirts of town and this small, Emu chick walks into your workshop. No father and siblings located sadly, so he or she is now in our care. Only 341gm 😮

Emu's can be very difficult to rear given that they have a tendency to imprint on their carers. As they mature this situation is less than ideal.

Delighted to report that this little one is in good hands and doing well. So very cute and adventurous. Trying healthy foods and drinking very well.

(03/08/2023) An update..... footage was supplied to the ABC by the chick's RRANA carer who filmed the little emu splashing and playing in muddy water at a dam.

Check out the video of the "splishing n splashing" on ABC facebook page:

"Splish, splash, I was takin' a bath, a rub dub, just relaxin' in the dam"
