We are breathing a HUGE sigh of relief!!! We had a bit of a scare during the last storm and power outage—a tripped breaker meant our incubators got dangerously cold and we were fairly certain (well, Tony was absolutely certain) we had lost all of our eggs in the incubators—they were full up with 9 trays of eggs so we were almost in tears!!!! Heartbreaking days. But… we just kept turning them and watching and hoping against hope… and OH MY GOODNESS—they have started to hatch. So…prayers answered and I am so thankful for it!!! Just love these little wobbly...
Fun Friday Emu Fact: So last week I told you how tasty emu meat is. But... it is also good for you!! Thank you to the AEA for this wonderful meat comparison chart. You can see that emu meat is very lean and high in protein, making it a nutritious alternative, especially for those folks with alpha gal (a tick borne allergy to mammalian meat) or other food sensitivities. #3Feathersemus #emumeatisgoodforyou #emutheotherredmeat #alphagal #farmingisfun #fridayfunfact
Since we got our first emu pairs in 2009, we have been members of the American Emu Association, a national, member driven, non-profit agricultural association dedicated to the emu industry. If you are at all interested in raising emus and selling emu products, it is worth it to become a member. Check them out at aea-emu.org #3Feathersemus #emuoilisgoodforyou #fridayfunfact #emufarmer
A hearty thanks to King 5 Evening program for taking the time to highlight 3 Feathers. We got to show off our birds and our lovely products, and also each other since we are a living love story, of course. Check out the video.... #3Feathersemus #king5evening #emuoilforhealthyskin
The snow has melted. We have 5 emu pairs laying eggs and have just started our first incubation for the year. Getting excited about chicks already. Mark your calendars for June 6 this year for our annual Spring Visit Day!!!
