Rhea for sale: Summer 2020
Back to the main menu
Grey or white chicks from 6 weeks of age - £100

Rhea make great additions to a smallholding - they can be a useful part of your grazing programme, eating weeds (docks, buttercups etc) and helping a little, to clean up any 'wormy' pastures. They require good fencing (at least 4/5 foot) and plenty of space to run around - they do love a good run and need it when young especially, in order to strengthen their leg muscles - we recommend at least an acre even for just 2 or 3 birds but this can be shared with other animals. They need protecting from the fox until they are 7/8 months old, after which they should be safe to live out all year round. They grow to around 5 foot tall and will be fully grown at around 18 months of age!
Rhea have a fascinating life cycle as the males build the nest and incubate the eggs! Their mating displays and rituals are highly entertaining!
The way to a rhea's heart is through its stomach as they adore lettuce and will learn to hand feed (although we recommend gloves!!!).
Our rhea are very friendly and will often walk around our fields with us and our dogs!
