Our emu, Lelu, is one of five others of which she is the matriarch. She joined us when she was eleven years old. She didn't come alone; she came accompanied by her husband, Jamers, who sadly passed away a few years ago. The two of them originally lived with a family who found it impossible to keep them contained in their enclosure. The family reached out to us to provide the two emu a safe and loving home. Lelu loves being squirted with cool water from the hose during our hot summer days and dining on as many tasty, fresh greens she can get her beak on.
