Description:
Rhea chicks are very cute. Their down is striped yellow and brown. Their feathers will start to grow in at about six weeks of age. They are best raised in a warm spot, off the ground. They can begin to go outside on a warm day at about one month of age, but must be brought inside at night to protect them from owls.
