Free Emu Talk Series – Emu chicks and eggs

Virtual (Zoom) 

Curious about emu? Tune into Emu Talk—a virtual series presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension Ulster County. This week will feature Kymara Lonergan, founder of Thunderhorse Hollow Farm, Ulster Park, NY; Joylene Reavis, who raised emus in southern Wisconsin for 20 years and hatched out over 1,500 chicks during that time; and Janean Parker of Feathers Emu Ranch. Kymara, Joylene, and Janean will share their experiences with emu chicks and eggs.

This Emu Talk—the second in this multi-part series—will occur via zoom on Thursday, June 23, from 12:00-1:00 pm. 

Kymara Lonergan is the founder of Thunderhorse Hollow Farm, a no-kill emu, horse, organic flower, and herb farm located in Ulster Park, NY. She has been handling all types of birds for many decades but found her true passion with emus. Kymara has been involved with agricultural projects since the early years of 4-H while growing up in Litchfield County, CT. While working as a Registered Nurse and Emergency Responder, she founded The Southern Maine Medical Reserve Corps and developed an interest in farm emergency management. She is Vice President of The American Emu Association and Director of Regions 1&2. 

Joylene Reavis and her husband have raised emus in southern Wisconsin for 20 years and hatched out over 1,500 chicks during that time. There were several years when Joylene and her husband had over 200 emus on their property. 

Janean Parker is nestled in the Deep Creek valley of western Washington, where she has been raising emus since 2009 at Feathers Emu Ranch.
