No experience with them and feeders but I bet they will hit feeders. Not much out there that doesn't like an easy meal.

Mainstream news might be fun to watch

They will sure visit a feeder. I don't think they bother deer to much, probably depend on your deer and the Emus disposition, some can be real AH's

and they likely associate people with food if they have escaped or been turned loose. They will approach you if they see you. We had a breeding pair on our ranch when we bought it. They had babies. They would show up, one would spin the feeder to drop corn and the other 2 would sit on the ground under the feeder and peck it up as fast as the other would spin it. They will empty that feeder quickly.

We had some turned out on a place we were hunting quite a few years ago and yes, they will eat all your corn, tear up your feeders, run the deer off and also come after you too. After getting the landowner's blessing, we took quite a few of them out.

Trap 'em. The market is strong. I hear you can get $30,000 for a breeding pair peep
