Emus and Rheas

Postby lane01 » Wed Mar 14, 2007 6:44 pm

I have heard that either emus or rheas are good at keeping hawks and various other mean critters away from chickens. Has anyone heard this or found this to be true? Do they both do it or is it only one? I would like to get something to protect the chickens. Lemme know. Thanks....
Yup...I'm a Gator!!!

They are very large, ostrich-like birds Clem.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
