Arctic Chill Over BC Doesn't Bother Emu

Emu "cousin" bearing up well in Feb BC Snowstorm
One thing about raising emu is that they are very adaptable. They have been around for thousands of years in Australia from desert conditions to snow capped mountains. They can adjust to wide ranges in temperature, varying levels of food supply and most predators (exception being the dingo). When Vancouver Islanders ask if they wouldn't be happier in a shed or barn we chuckle as the tight quarters would be more upsetting than anything mother nature has in store.
