Limb diseases in ratites represent a problem in the farming. This study was carried out at the Department of Poultry and Ornamental Bird Breeding in Szczecin, Poland, on the co-operating emu and ostrich farms. Based on the observations, the following recommendations have been proposed, which should facilitate proper management of an emu/ostrich farm: (1) as a preventive measure, the legs of the chicks should be tied together for 4-6 days after hatching, (2) the chicks should be provided with enough space to move freely, (3) the ration during the first weeks of life should not much exceed the level of birds' nutritional requirements, (4) against curled toe or toes, corrective splints should applied, tailored to the size of the foot and fastened so as not to impede movement ability, (5) intensive and regular stimulating massages should be applied against myopathy
