Leicestershire Emus and Rheas
Welcome to the Leicestershire Emus
and Rheas website
EMUS – Dromaius novaehollandiae
/ COMMON RHEA -
I have been keeping and breeding
emus since 1997. They are friendly, fascinating birds and not difficult
to keep successfully. Like any animal they do have individual characteristics
and are very hardy in our unpredictable English climate. Whether
your interest is for business or pleasure, this website will give you
some basic information about Emus and Rheas.
After 10 years breeding Emus I decided it was time to
expand into Rheas as well. These South American
birds that are the same family as Emus have many
similarities yet also many differences. Follow the link
below to find out more about these elegant birds.
