Strength is not a major requirement in handling of emu birds but adoption of proper and perfect technique is the need.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Prior to handling them, it is important to be aware of the strengths and weakness of emus.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Normally, emus are rather docile and cautious birds. However when you attempt to work with them, their quickness and speed become very evident.

PowerPoint Presentation:

While handling one must know very well about their strong powerful legs, sharp claws and quick feet.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Emus kick forward : So always attempt to work from the side or from behind because of their ability to deliver powerful kicks to the front.
